Pack A Box,
Fill A Heart!

We have so much to be thankful for, but too often we forget! This holiday season we are putting gratitude into practice by bringing Christmas to kids all over the world through Operation Christmas Child. It’s the perfect opportunity to help a child in need and remind ourselves and our kids just how grateful we should be!

If you already have a shoe box, see packing details below.

2 - Fill With Gifts

*Include a cash (no checks please) donation of $10 in your box to cover shipping costs.

3 - Drop Off & Pray

Bring your boxes back to Fellowship Church by Sunday, November 20th and pray over the many children that will receive gifts and the hope of Christ this Christmas!
