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.

Good Friday Service

Good Friday is a time we come together at Faith Community Church to remember and reflect on the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
 
His death on the cross–while a somber and dark day in our world’s history–was the necessary precursor to the miracle of Resurrection Sunday (Easter).
 
Join us at 6:30pm on Friday, March 30 for a family worship service* that blends gospel narrative, contemplative music, and self-reflection.
 
Remember to finish the story on Easter Sunday during one of our Celebration Services (8:30am | 10:30am).
 
*Nursery & kids classrooms available for children 4 years old & younger.
 
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” -Matthew 11:28-30
