Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations worldwide through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God?s love. Here are some ways you can make a difference in the lives of those children:
PRAY. Please pray that God will touch the heart of every child who receives a shoe box gift and that He will bring many children and families to faith in Christ.
PACK A GIFT. A shoe box filled with small toys and other gifts can open hurting hearts to God?s love. Instructional brochures will be available at your church. The information can also be found at http://www.samaritanspurse.org or by calling1-800-353-5949.
GIVE. Please remember to give $7 or more per box to cover shipping and other project costs.
VOLUNTEER. Make a difference in the lives of children by volunteering with Operation Christmas Child! You can serve year-round on teams, promoting the project through the local church and community. Or beginning in November, serve short-term at a local drop-off site or at one of six Processing Centers around the country. Check our Website or call the national number for more information.
OUR INVOLVEMENT: Our congregation is involved in this project since 1995. The last two years the congregation packed about 300 shoe boxes.
This group’s purpose statement is: As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. We commit ourselves to: grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society and the world.
Every woman of St. Andrews is encouraged to take an active part in this organisation.
We meet: Every second Thursday afternoon of the month at 1:30 pm at the Church.
The Women’s Missionary Society (WMS) is an active group of women in our congregation. They support several mission endeavours financially. They get together every month on the third Tuesday at 1:30 pm at the church.
