Wrap up a blessing for a child in need! Skyland is hosting Samaritan’s Purse’s Operation Christmas Child from Oct. 8 to Nov. 8 and we need YOUR help.
Each year, Operation Christmas Child sends shoeboxes full of Christmas presents to thousands of children around the world. Pastors distribute the shoeboxes in communities where people may not know Christ, or use them to reach out to children in orphanages or other at-risk areas. Many children come to know Jesus through their shoebox, and we are honored to be part of that Gospel journey by collecting shoeboxes! Pick up a shoebox (or more) from our Holy Grounds hallway and fill it with new items (see ideas here) before November 16. You may also make a donation (make checks payable to Skyland UMC with “Missions-OCC” on the check memo line) and the Skyland Missions team will be happy to buy and package gifts for you.
