Operation Christmas Child
Next week, Mrs. Gonzales’ class will be celebrating 20 years of promoting, “Operation Christmas”. We are asking all of Elementary to support this amazing out-reach for Christ. All shoe boxes are due November 15.
The second grade class is inviting all students to reach out to other boys and girls around the world, meeting their special needs during the holiday season. In conjunction with Samaritan’s Purse international, “Operation Christmas Child”, will provide millions of shoe-sized boxes filled with gifts and then ship them to children in need around the world. Many of these children face daily struggles against persecution, disease, natural disasters, and poverty. Thursday, November 3, Mrs. Gonzales’ second grade class will introduce this outreach project.
Each elementary student will receive a shoe-box with information on how to “fill” it. All shoe-boxes must be returned to their classes on Tuesday, November 15. Along with the joy of giving, the ultimate goal is to share the message of God’s greatest gift-His Son, Jesus Christ. Many families around the world have come to know Jesus through this unique Operation Christmas ministry.
