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!

Pack a box

Secure a shoebox

Boxes and packing details will be available at Fellowship Church beginning Sunday, October 22.

Fill with gifts

Select a quality "wow" toy such as a doll or a soccer ball with pump. Include other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies, a personal note or photo. No food or liquid.

Drop off & pray

Bring your boxes back to Fellowship Church by Sunday, November 19 and pray over the many children that will receive gifts and the hope of Christ this Christmas!
