Samaritan's PursE - OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD


We're beginning our Shoebox season with Samaritan’s Purse and their Operation Christmas Child led by our Westview OCC team of Lucy Alaimo, Crissy DiMarco, Chris Piazza and Patricia Garcia.      

 

We have a wonderful opportunity to be part of bringing that hope; the message of the gospel, the love and care of Jesus - through practical gifts we place in a box for children in need around the world.  If you are able, we encourage you to pickup a shoebox.  Do one yourself, team up with someone.  Encourage those you know at work, school, neighbourhood, etc. to do a shoebox. 

The instruction booklet you’ll get with your shoebox will give you ideas for what you can include in it.

To pick up your shoebox:

You can also get a shoebox and pamphlet from the church during the week: Tuesday - Friday, between 9am and 4pm, or contact the church for other arrangements.  


Here's a video showing the impact of a shoebox in a child's life...



  

The return dates of filled shoeboxes are November 18, 19 and 20, from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Operation Christmas Child is a fun and simple, hands-on
 project of Samaritan’s Purse which asks people to fill shoe
boxes with a variety of gifts to bless the lives of children
living in desperate situations in the developing world.

Each year Westview participates in two ways:

1. As a church our people fill & contribute shoeboxes. 

2. We are a distribution centre for the Montreal area for other churches, for schools and community groups, to get boxes. 

A small shoebox can have a big impact. Be a part of changing children's lives all over the
world in Jesus' Name through the power of a simple gift.
                                                                         
A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children's lives all over the world in Jesus' Name through the power of a simple gift.  

Good News!  Great Joy!

Prayer:

Each shoebox is a gospel opportunity, each shoebox represents a child who will hear of God’s love, and our desire is that each shoebox will be covered in prayer!  Help us cover all these boxes through prayer.
