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.
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
Take your shoebox gift(s) to Faith Community Church on Sunday, Nov. 17 or 24 (between 9:30am-12:30pm) or during normal weekday operating hours by Nov. 22.

Heartbeat Conference

Heartbeat Conference

February 19 (6pm) – 21 (9pm), 2016

Why does God’s call for evangelism and discipleship so quickly lose its luster and get placed on the back burner of life?

However, our hearts naturally tend to stray from the heartbeat of God.

Join us during this multi-day conference (presented by Faith Warrior Ministry and Faith Community Church) as we focus our hearts on loving God, loving others, and learning how.

$25 covers materials and food for three days of hands-on workshops, heartfelt worship, encouraging messages, fellowship, and more.

Each evening will end by 9:00pm (no lodging on site).

“A powerful resource for Christians who want to share their faith with confidence, and to those still seeking answers.” Josh McDowell

“Shows how metaphor and real-life stories make sense of the gospel for skeptics and believers alike.”
Ravi Zacharias

Alex McLellan (author/radio host) leads this multi-week seminar based on his book A Jigsaw Guide to Making Sense of the World.
“If you’re looking at life and looking for answers, Christianity will help you put the broken pieces back together – so you can stand back and see the big picture. The good news: there is hope and we can be prepared to share it!” –Alex McLellan
Mondays (7:30-9:00pm) from September 14 – October 19, 2015 at Faith Community Church (2700 Rancho Pancho, Carlsbad, 92009).
