The Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child is led by Luci Sheffield
After sharing the story of the Good Samaritan, Jesus said “Go and do likewise.” That is the mission of Samaritan’s Purse—to follow the example of Christ by helping those in need and proclaiming the hope of the Gospel.
Union Church has for many years assisted in Samaritan’s Purse’s Christmas Shoebox for the Children. For more information about their program click here. If you want to participate in this great effort then contact Luci Sheffield at 251.633.7195.
Operation Christmas Child provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on project of Samaritan’s Purse that focuses on giving rather than receiving. Shoeboxes will be available on Sunday, September 4 for taking and packing full of school supplies, hygiene items and toys for boys and girls who will not receive a gift at Christmastime. These shoeboxes are given to children around the world. If you would like for us to shop for you just give a cash or check donation to Union Baptist earmarked for Shoeboxes. Turn in date this year is Sunday, November 13th.
