Operation Christmas Child 2021
Operation Christmas Child boxes will be going ahead this year!
A lady who received a shoebox as a child said that there were 4 things she treasured from the box she received. A soft toy (good for all ages and a WOW present - it is good to have a WOW present in each box), a ball (all ages love balls which can be shared and give so much fun), a photo of the person/family/group who packed the box (this makes it personal), and a letter/card with words of greeting and love.
For GSFC and the local community, flat pack boxes are available in the Ashen Green entrance along with leaflets. There is also a box for items to be placed if you would rather donate these than fill a whole box. There is also a list of suggested items. Please do not put toothpaste or sweets in your box! Donations are also always welcome to buy items or for training/ transport costs.
You can also pack an online box for £20 by choosing your items on the Operation Christmas Child website
Collection week is the 15th - 22nd of November.
Shoeboxes can be dropped of at GSFC and at Tucker Gardner Estate Agent.
We plan to have a SHOEBOX FILLING PARTY
along with a CAKE SALE on Sat 13th November.
Please come and support this!
These boxes are not just gifts of love, they offer the opportunity via those who distribute the boxes to share the good news of Jesus.
