Operation Christmas Child
Each year WBC participates in collecting shoeboxes stuffed with toys and school supplies for children all over the world. Operation Christmas Child has sent shoeboxes to over 135 million children around the world since 1993. One of the greatest things about these shoeboxes is that they come with trained volunteers who share the gospel with the children and their families after they receive their Christmas gift. Almost 7.5 million children have participated in The Greatest Journey program which is a follow-up 12-lesson program for Bible study and growth in faith, all in their own language. These studies have helped existing churches grow and new churches start. Last year we collected 115 shoeboxes! Please consider how many shoeboxes you might be able to pack this year. November 19 is the last day to return filled shoeboxes.
Celebration Sunday – Combined Worship Service Nov. 19th at 10:30am
A celebration during our morning worship service, when we bring our Faith Promise Cards and offer them to the Lord. As the Lord continues to provide for your family, be in prayer as to how God will lead you in your commitment. Not equal gifts, but equal sacrifice.
