How to Pack & Deliver Your Shoebox Gifts!

Find a Shoebox

Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately. Or pick-up a box at church.
 
 
Girl or Boy?
 
Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category.
 
Can’t decide? Feel free to build multiple shoebox gifts! The more the merrier!
 
 
Fill with Gifts
 
Select a quality “wow” toy such as a doll, soccer ball with pump, or stuffed animal.
 
Then add other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. See gift “DOs and DON’Ts” here.
 
 
Pray
 
Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
 
 
$9 Tracking Labels
 
Donate $9 online and receive a tracking label to Follow Your Box and discover the destination of your shoebox gift.
 
Alternatively, you can use the labels from the printed brochure and send a check or cash in the envelope (provided in the brochure)1
 
 
Drop-Off
 
Take your shoebox gift(s) to Faith Community Church on Sunday, Nov. 11 or 18 (between 9:30am-12:30pm) or during normal weekday operating hours by Nov. 16.

Progressive Prayer (Apr. 29)

After church on Sunday, April 29, we hope you will stay for a progressive prayer and lunch event.

Following our 10:30am Family Worship Service, we will meet back in the sanctuary (12:00pm) for a time of corporate prayer together before splitting into groups and rotating through stations at the church (lobby, lawn, children’s wing, etc.) to pray for people and ministries unique to each area.
 
A “progressive lunch” will be served throughout (something at each station).

Parents and kids are encouraged to take this opportunity to pray together as a family. Cards will be given to kids to get stamped at each station (& get a prize for completion!).
 
As we continue to focus on our church theme for the year (3,2,1…GO!), one of our goals is to be more intentional about praying for the lost. April 29 is an opportunity to do just that, so mark your calendars.
