October 10 - November 14

CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES

Sunday, Oct. 10 – Nov. 14 | FCC & Online

FCC has partnered with Operation Christmas Child to provide Christmas boxes for needy children around the world. The amazing journey of a simple shoebox gift begins with you and results in evangelism, discipleship, and multiplication. Pastors around the world host outreach events in places where people may not know Christ and invite them to follow Him. Other churches use the boxes as resources for outreach in orphanages and other at-risk areas. In many places, they also offer The Greatest Gift, a Gospel story booklet Samaritan’s Purse developed for shoebox recipients which invites each child to participate in The Greatest Journey discipleship program. At FCC you can pick up your shoebox on 3 different Sundays – October 10, 17 and 24. Take the box and purchase items for a boy or a girl for Christmas, and return your box on October 31, November 7 or Nov. 14. A donation of $9 per box is critical to cover shipping and other project costs.  One simple box makes a huge impact! There is also an online option for building a box.
