02 Oct Operation Christmas Child 2018
We are partnering with Operation Christmas Child to help provide gift-filled shoe boxes to children in more than 160 countries and territories. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoe box is the first gift they have ever received.
The amazing journey of a shoe box gift begins with you and results in evangelism, discipleship, and multiplication. Collection at Stonebriar Community Church takes place October 28 through November 18. Drop off your shoe boxes at locations throughout the church.
Visit the Operation Christmas Child website to learn more about packing and volunteering.
Christmas in November:
Sew a Bag for Operation Christmas Child
This year, we are adding handmade bags—made with love and prayers—to every OCC shoebox packed by Stonebriar families. What a joy it will be to create a gift that will keep on giving, learn a new skill, help share the Gospel, and give to those who have very little.
You can help us make these special bags at our Christmas in November sewing event. No experience is needed, and anyone age 10 or older is welcome to help. We will supply the sewing machines, seasoned seamstresses, supplies to make one bag per registered family, and a light snack. The cost is $10 per family (up to four people). Sign up to join us on Saturday, November 10 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.Sign Up for Christmas in November
