LakeView Church is participating in Operation Christmas Child again this year.
The Samaritan's Purse Project Operation Christmas Child collects shoe boxes - filled with school supplies, hygiene items, fun toys and notes of encouragement - and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God'd love in a tangible way. Samaritan's Purse has collected and delivered more than 135 million gift-filled shoe boxes to to children in more than 150 countries. For many children, this is the first gift they have ever received.
What goes in your shoe box? For a complete list of suggested gift items to purchase that are age appropriate for boys or girls, visit the OCC website. The Longest Journey, a Bible study resource is also included in the box.
The boxes will be available to pick up in the church lobby from October 22, 2017 through November 5, 2017. The final drop off date for the boxes is Sunday, November 12. Thank you in advance for your consideration in taking part in this gift-giving ministry.
In addition, you are asked to donate $9 to cover shipping costs.
