Operation Christmas Child

Item for the month of July:  Crayons and/or Sharpeners  

  I know it seems too soon to be getting ready for Christmas, but Operation Christmas Child needs your help now. Our goal this year is to turn in 150 Boxes. That means that we need 150 of each of the items we place in each box.
 This project has become a tradition at Grace Lutheran Church. The members of Grace have been in partnership with Operation Christmas Child for many years. Last year, we were able to send 150 boxes to Pilgrim Church which serves as a drop-off site for local donations. In 2018, 10,623,776 shoebox gifts were sent to 112 countries and territories. 4 million shoebox recipients participated in the follow up discipleship program and more than 2 million students made decisions for Christ. Every box that we pack is an opportunity for church partners to tell a boy or girl about Jesus.
 Here at Grace, each month we ask for a different item. You may drop off your donations in the lobby at any time during office hours. Thank you to everyone who has supported this opportunity over the years and we hope you will continue to support it this year. If you would like to be a part of this project or you have questions, please see Linda Mason.
 If you would like to help make up for the drop in donations during the last few months due to Covid-19 feel free to view the downloadable list of needed items.
