Operation Christmas Child: A Pioneer Club Project
This October, our Wednesday night Pioneer Clubs are partnering with Samaritan’s Purse to share the love of Jesus with kids all over the world. We will assemble shoeboxes (according to gender and age range: 2-4 years, 5-9 years, 10-14 years) to be given to children who would normally not receive a Christmas gift. Our clubbers hope to build 100 boxes on October 19.
We invite our LCC family to participate in one or both of the following ways.
• Donate money to cover the cost of processing and shipping our shoeboxes ($10 per box). Some of these will travel by mule and camel at the end of their journeys! Be sure to designate your gift as Operation Christmas Child. Use a tithe envelope, give online, or stop by our table in the foyer.
• Donate items to fill boxes. Stop by the table in the foyer for a complete list of ideas with guidelines. Click here to see a general list. Deadline for donations: October 19.
What a great opportunity for our kids to actively participate in giving to other children who have much less. Thank you for your support!
