Operation Christmas Child collection week is scheduled

National collection week for Operation Christmas Child is Nov. 15 to Nov. 22, and for the first time Red Bud Bible Church (formerly Red Bud first baptistChurch) will provide a local drop off location. 

Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of the international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse. Anyone who wants to participate can fill a shoebox with school supplies, hygiene items and toys to be delivered to children in over 160 countries. The boxes are then handed out by local ministry partners along with a message introducing the children to the love of Jesus. 

For more information, please see this week’s print edition.
