Operation Christmas Child
March to November 2017
The Missions Team is excited to announce that our Bethany family will be participating in Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. Last year, Bethany sent 366 shoeboxes to Samaritan’s Purse for distribution to children around the world. It was thrilling that so many families, groups, and individuals took part in this endeavor. This year, the challenge is to pack and send 500 or more Shoeboxes.
Over the next eight months, the Missions Team will be promoting this project and actively collecting items to pack at our Shoebox Packing Party in November. Info on what can or can’t be packed in shoe boxes will be available at the Welcome Center or click here for a copy.
The amazing journey of a Shoebox Gift begins with you and results in millions of children learning about God's Love. Please pray about this and join us in being a part of this mission project for 2017.
