Operation Christmas Child – Reasons to Give

Every year we partner with “Operation Christmas Child” to send good news and great joy to children all around the world. Through the power of simple shoebox gifts, children experience God’s love and the Good News of the Gospel. To participate see the OCC display in the Lobby. Once assembled, please drop off your shoebox gifts to the children’s ministry check-in desk by Sunday, November 18th. This is a wonderful project to do as a family this Christmas Season!

In October at our First Sundays Together worship service, a family from TCC shared their experience participating in Operation Christmas Child. They shared with honesty and humility that giving things away is hard. The human heart needs re-direction, and giving away things is an exercise in conviction, and ultimately, worship. After all, as our LTA memory verse for December says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16)”.

If you missed it (or even if you saw it, you might want to watch it again), check out this short video from a TCC family about their Operation Christmas Child experience.

Shoeboxes are due Sunday November 18th! Pick one up in the display in the lobby today!
