Operation Christmas Child Summer Project

The Project

Crossway is filling 1000 shoeboxes with fun items, to send around the world into dark places so that children can learn about Jesus as their savior.
 

How You Can Help

If you have not had an opportunity to participate through a Bible Fellowship class or want to do more, there are a few different ways you can help:

  1. Shop for one or more of the assigned items
    School Supplies: 20-30 boxes of crayons/scissors; 10-15 packs of pencils/pens; 20-30 spiral notebooks (70 page .25 at Walmart)
    Clothing: Boy's underwear size 10-12; toddle 2-4t

    Any items collected should be placed at the OCC Table by Sunday, August 12.
     
  2. If you're unable to shop for the items or would like to help with additional funds, you can place your gift in one of the OCC labeled envelopes found at the OCC table. Place the envelope in the offering when collected or drop it off at the Resource/Connect Desk. Please make any checks payable to Crossway Baptist Church.
     
  3. Prayerfully consider how many shoeboxes you wish to sponsor (a suggested donation of $13 will cover all items in a shoebox). A gift of any amount will be welcomed and appreciated! 
     

Packing Party

There will be a packing Party on Thursday, August 16 at 6pm in the Student Center Gym. This will be a time where we pack all the items collected into shoeboxes and pray over the boxes – that God would bless the work done and use them to reach children with the gospel.
