Operation Christmas Child

It’s that wonderful time of year! Asbury will participate in Operation Christmas Child to show the love of Jesus to children all around the world!

There are many ways you can help out! If you would like to pack a box, we have some boxes here at Asbury or you can use your own box. There is a list of items you should and should not pack on the Samaritan’s Purse website: http://samaritanspurse.org

Don’t forget to include a check for $9 to cover the shipping cost of the box. Please have your completed boxes back to Asbury on or before November 14th.

You are also able to build a shoe box online. If you go to Samaritan’s purse website above and follow the build a box online link. It takes you step by step.

If you would like us to pack a box for you, we are happy to do it! Just mail in a check to Asbury or put in the tithes and offerings basket on Sunday mornings. Write Operation Christmas Child on the memo line. The address to mail the check to is 1751 27th street, Columbus IN 47201. Please put c/o Heidi. The deadline is November 8th to donate so we have time to shop! If you have questions email Heidi at hwarren@asburycolumbus.org

Thank you so much! Operation Christmas Child reaches thousands of children each year. Not only will the children receiving a box get a wonderful gift, sometimes the first gift they have ever received in their life, but you also give them the gift of learning The Gospel. Samaritan’s Purse offers The Greatest Journey, which is a 12 lesson discipleship course, where the children learn to follow Jesus Christ and share Him with others. This program is such a wonderful way to help spread The Good News of Jesus!
