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.
