In its continuing support of Samaritan’s Purse, First Baptist Church is pleased to announce the following enhancement to the annual Operation Christmas Child shoebox drive.
This year, for each shoe box filled for OCC, the church will include a scholarship in each one for “The Greatest Journey” discipleship program offered by Samaritan’s Purse.
The 12 lesson course includes Bible stories, Scripture memorization and kids can learn how to follow Christ in their daily lives as they share Him with friends and family.
More than 23.3 million children have enrolled in this program since 2009.
“Our mission statement calls us to change the world,” Pastor Bob of First Baptist Church said. “We believe this discipleship program will increase our ability to change the world through OCC.”
You do not have to be a member of First Baptist to take advantage of this offer.
To participate in this program, pick up an empty shoebox provided by First Baptist on Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at 9:30 a.m. is the worship service.
Guidelines are included in the shoebox.
Once the shoebox is filled, it must be returned to First Baptist no later than Nov. 1.
