It's shoebox packing time! Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church is partnering with Samaritan's Purse for the annual Operation Christmas Child mission to send Gospel Opportunity Boxes to children all over the world.
Free, empty GO Boxes will be available at CCPC starting 10/18, at the church courtyard. Please stop by and take as many boxes as you plan to pack, fill them up at home, and return your packed boxes during the week of 11/16-11/22. While we encourage you to invite friends to participate, please do not gather for "packing parties" as in years past.
On Sunday 10/18, 12:30pm-1:30pm, at the Canyon Creek Church parking lot, we will be distributing empty boxes with a starter kit (while supplies last). This is a drive-thru event; please follow the signs and remain in your car. The starter kit may include basic school supplies, hygiene items, or small toys. You add the "wow" gift and any other items you want to send. Please check out the website for suggestions of what to include.
You can track your box by going to Samaritan's Purse where you can donate and print a packing label with barcode. Or, you can place a $9 check (payable to Samaritan's Purse) inside the box. Fasten the box closed with a rubberband only; please do not tape! Your $9 donation will cover the cost of shipping your gift internationally. In a few months, you'll receive an update about where your box is sent! As a child receives your box filled with thoughtful gifts, he or she will also hear the good news of God's love.
If you'd like to donate "starter kit" items, please signup below and drop off your donation at CCPC on Sunday 10/18 between 12:30-1:30pm.
If you'd like to pack a box, please signup below to let us know how many boxes and starter kits to prepare.
Every box is an opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ! Thank you for sharing these gifts with children around the world, and have fun packing!
