Family Service Project: Operation Christmas Child

St. Luke's is partnering with Operation Christmas Child to help bring joy to children around the world again this year. Every year we ask members of our congregation to put together a shoe box of goodies to give to a child abroad who would not be given any gifts.

This mission is a wonderful opportunity to do a service project together as a family. The items in the boxes do not need to be expensive but they can teach your children the joy of giving. It is our hope that every family at St. Luke's would put together a shoe box to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and the joy of the holiday season around the world.

So how do you help? Take a shoe box or plastic tub, fill it with fun items, toys, clothes, candy, toiletries, etc. and bring it to church our Thanksgiving Service on Nov 25th at 7pm. They will be blessed and sent around the world with love from our community.

For more information on how to pack a box, please visit the Operation Christmas Child website here.

Finally, OCC has collaborated with Veggie Tales this year and here is a brief video to watch as a family to learn more about Operation Christmas Child:
