We are spreading Christmas cheer locally and beyond through two primary non-profits and here is how you can help! We can't wait to see how many lives are touched through both of these amazing organizations.
Operation Christmas Child
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 146 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 150 countries and territories. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received.
This year we are committing to Building A Shoebox for as many children as we can. The simplest and most effective way to build a shoebox is to do it online.
Make it your own by choosing from a list of gifts, then add a personal letter and photo. We'll pack your shoebox and send it for you, for a suggested donation of just $25. Each shoebox gift becomes a tangible expression of God's love for a child in real need. Shoeboxes built online also allow ease of entry through customs, and help ensure Operation Christmas Child’s continued presence in places that are hard to reach.
Beautiful Feet Ministries 'Secret Agent Christmas'
Beautiful Feet Ministries yearly serves over 80,000 meals, distributes clothing to over 5,000 people, and provides medical and dental services to over 1,200 patients. At this event, over 150 children receive Christmas presents and dinner through a network of families and churches from the Fort Worth area and even other states. This is an awesome opportunity to take not only Christmas presents, but the true meaning of Christmas into homes of the inner-city of Fort Worth.
We are collecting presents during our Sunday service on November 26th and December 3rd. While presents for all ages will definitely be accepted, we are especially focusing on children ages 10-18.
Here are some sample items you could bring, but not limited to this list.
- Footballs/baseballs and all types of sporting equipment
- Bibles and books
- Action Figures
- Drawing and Artist activities
You can also participate in the 'Caroling Blitz' on December 8th.
