The MMKs (Mission Minded Kids) are excited about their biggest service project of the season. This Christmas they want to make a difference in the lives of other children and those in real need. Through the power of Christ, one shoebox gift lovingly packed by a family or an individual and delivered to a child overseas can inspire pastors, multiply congregations, plant new churches and inspire children to share the Gospel with family and friends.
Won’t you help the MMKs gather items so they can share Christ’s love in this very tangible way? For your convenience, the supply list is attached. Parents, it would be wonderful to shop with your MMK and let them choose some of the small items. You could fill a box or two together as a family. Any shoe box you have at home can be used. Or, if you prefer to shop and drop the items off at church for us to pack in our boxes that would be great, too!
Our MMK “Packing Party” is set for Wed. night, Nov. 19. If you could have your box/items to us by Sunday, Nov. 16th, we would sure appreciate it! Shipping costs will run $7.00 per box. We would certainly appreciate your help with that, too.
A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Thank you in advance for helping us as we seek to change children's lives all over the world in Jesus' Name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.
Joyfully Serving Jesus!
