One of the Ministries of Franklin Graham (Billy Graham’s son) is a ministry called Samaritan’s Purse, whose purpose is to provide for the phyiscal and spiritual needs of impoverished people throughout the world, focusing especially upon children and families.
One of their projects is Operation Christmas Child, a program in which the purchasing and preparing of shoe boxes with gifts for children helps to spread the good news of Christmas. These gifts are used as a means for making contact with families and children and the presenting the gospel, as well as teaching them about the person of Jesus and His gift of salvation.
Each year, we as a fellowship encourage one another to share the gospel of Jesus Christ by filling one or more Christmas shoe boxes. You will find the boxes on a table in the foyer of the church.
Please take as many as you want and don’t forget the instruction booklet.
Then bring them back to the church any time before November 15th.
What a great way to show the love of Christ to a child in a practical way!!!
