Would you like to share your resources with children around the world through Operation Christmas Child? All you have to do is grab a shoebox or similarly sized plastic container, fill it with awesome stuff, and bring it to Riverside on or before Sunday, November 20. For more information on what to include in your box, you can pick up a brochure at the Operation Christmas Child table at Riverside or go here.
Last year more than 11 million shoebox gifts were presented to boys and girls around the world and throughout the year. These gifts are often the first real presents children have ever received. After receiving a shoebox, children will have the opportunity to enroll in a Bible class that explains what it means to faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Many times the parents of these children come to know Christ because their children have attended these classes. Thank you for your willingness to impact children’s lives around the world by packing shoeboxes.
Don’t forget…all boxes need to be turned in to Riverside’s building by the end of second service on Sunday, November 20.
