OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Using the funds given to Operation Christmas Child, volunteers from our church are shopping for toys and others items. They will create a store where GAs, RAs and Mission Friends will shop at on October 2. Ways you can help: 1: Donate to Operation Christmas Child by giving to FBC and writing Shoebox in the “for” line of your check. 2:You can also stuff boxes as a family or individual project. See the Operation Christmas Child website for details. Our church also has some extra boxes from OCC. 3:Parents of RAs, GAs and Mission Friends can send $5 with each of your children on Wednesday, October 2, so they can shop in our “store” that evening. We will have items set out by age range and gender so kids can get toys, socks, etc., for Operation Christmas Child.
