Think inside the box! This year, Bethany Church and School are partnering together to participate in Operation Christmas Child. In addition, Bethany Church will be a drop-off center.
Frank and Lani Martinez came to the K-5 chapel in August to share more about Operation Christmas Child and the lives they impact.
In 2017, Samaritan's Purse collected 11 million Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. In 2018 Operation Christmas Child is celebrating its 25th year of sharing the Good News and Great Joy among the nations. We understand that for every five boxes shared, a child makes a decision for Christ. Our goal is 500 boxes. At last count we were at 183 boxes
Labels and boxes are available in the Lobby.
Here are some key dates/times to be aware of:
