Operation Christmas Child Collection Week

Operation Christmas Child National Collection Week: November 12-19, 2018

What can you do?

Pray: No ministry is possible without the fervent prayers of all involved- for the collection, processing, and delivery of the Gospel Opportunity boxes around the world and for the children and families receiving them. Pray that they will come to a saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus and Christ and be able to share that same love with others.

Prepare: Help enlist families, schools, other churches, scout troops, neighborhoods, community groups and businesses to take part in creating many shoebox gifts for needy children all over the world.

Pack: Pack a shoebox! Don't forget to include your donation of $9 to cover the costs of shipping, distribution and training. Give online through Follow Your Box to discover the destination of your shoebox. Step-by-step packing instructions are available at www.samaritanspurse.org.

Volunteer: Many volunteers are needed at POPC during National Collection Week. Sign up to help pack shoeboxes into cartons, greet people as they drop off boxes, and pray with over the boxes received. Children over 10 are welcome. If you or your family are interested in volunteering or have questions, contact Jenny Murphy at 601-906-9776 or jmurphy61@yahoo.com.j
