Operation Christmas Child
PHUMC and all of its ministries LOVE Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes!
What is Operation Christmas Child?
Samaritan’s Purse project Operation Christmas Child collects shoebox gifts filled with fun toys, school supplies, and hygiene items—and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. Through this project, Samaritan’s Purse partners with the local church worldwide to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and make disciples of the nations. PHUMC is excited to be one of the partner churches!
How do I participate?
Just pick up a shoebox from outside of the church front office or the multi-purpose room on Sunday and fill it.
You can pack a shoebox with toys, school supplies, stuffed animals and turn it into the church during the month of October. Here is a great website to assist you: How To Pack A Shoebox
Are you having a packing party?
YES, as a matter of fact, we are! We are having a church-wide packing party Saturday, October 9, 2021, at 10 a.m. in the multi-purpose room. We will be packing 1,500 shoeboxes at this time.
All ages are invited to come and pack shoeboxes. At this church-wide packing party, all of the shoeboxes and supplies will be provided. We just need you to come and pack the boxes.
