Operation Christmas Child
Have you already started making your Christmas list? This year, consider adding another gift to the list—a simple gift, a shoe box filled with school supplies, toys, hygiene items, or clothing.
This November Stonebriar will join up with Samaritan's Purse for the Operation Christmas Child (OCC) outreach. Through this ministry, children in more than 100 different countries are able to experience Christmas. The shoe box campaign will begin Sunday, November 1. Two weeks later, on November 15, we will collect filled boxes from our congregation (look for tables in the Atrium on Sundays). These gifts, for either a boy or girl, will bring smiles to millions of children around the world and also introduce the message of hope. Through Gospel booklets and follow-up discipleship, these children will discover the greatest gift of all—Jesus!
Interested in packing a box as a family or class? Want to know more? Contact Teresa at 469-252-5351 or e-mail TeresaK@Stonebriar.org.
