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.
Here are some key dates/times to be aware of:
Friday, September 28 The last day to turn in Operation Christmas Child Boxes to receive House points. However, if you can, please send them to school with your child on Thursday so they can be collected during chapel. If we collect 500 boxes the house points will be DOUBLED!
Sunday, November 11 The last day to turn in Operation Christmas Child Boxes to Bethany Church.
Monday-Wednesday, November 12-14 – Bethany Church will be open as a drop off center from 5-7pm. Volunteers are needed during these times in to help receive, pack, and organize the shoeboxes. Wednesday, November 14th, Hilltop will be joining the volunteer festivities.
