It's getting to be that time again when we see those green and red shoeboxes showing up around the church. Look for our Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box display in Mission Central over the next few weeks. We will be collecting shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, hygiene items, and most of all - love from our congregation and neighboring churches. These boxes will go out to over 110 countries in the world and be placed in the hands of children in need.
Come join our newly renovated Angel Wings program as they host our 2nd annual Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing Party. Be a part of the fun, meet new friends, enjoy some food, pack shoeboxes and praise Jesus. All are welcome!
To make this packing party successful, we are looking for donations to fill the shoeboxes and sponsors to cover the shipping cost for each shoebox. We've created an Amazon wish list to make shopping a bit easier. Please visit pendletonchurch.org/occwishlist to view it. Donated items can be placed in the OCC Box in Mission Central.
Looking to volunteer but not sure where? We need volunteers to help collect these wonderful boxes during Shoebox Collection Week, when our church will be open extra hours to accept these gifts. If you can donate some time to act as an OCC representative and accept any boxes that may be dropped off during the week, we would love to have you! As we get closer to those dates, visit pendletonchurch.org and look for a link to sign up to help.
Stay, or come back after the 11:00 AM service on November 20 to help out with Shoebox Sunday. We'll be working together to pack up the shoeboxes into shipping cartons, load the trailer, and send them on their way to Eastern Hills church and the next step of their journey.
