Saint Basil Greek Orthodox Church
Greetings in the Lord!
We need your help! In 2020 we built and donated 81 boxes to Operation Christmas Child, and this year we want to donate 100 boxes!
Again this year, our Sunday School will participate in Operation Christmas Child, to bring some joy and the news of Christ to underprivileged children. Operation Christmas Child is a program established by Samaritan’s Purse to, “demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.” Underprivileged children from all over the world are brought the story of Jesus in their own language and delivered a box filled with school supplies, toys, hygiene items, prayers, and love.
Please review the follwing list of supplies needed to fill these boxes and consider signing up to purchase and donate. All donated items should be brought to church on Sundays between now and November 14. Our Sunday school children will assemble the boxes with these supplies on November 14th.
PLEASE NOTE THESE ITEMS NEED TO BE NEW AND NOT USED. ITEMS MUST BE SIZE APPROPRIATE TO FIT INSIDE A SHOEBOX. WAR-RELATED ITEMS LIKE TOY GUNS, KNIVES, MILITARY FIGURES, AND CAMOUFLAGE ITEMS ARE NOT ALLOWED.
Thank you for your participation in teaching our children how to give back and spread the gospel across the world!
With love in Christ,
St. Basil Sunday School
