Each year for the past several years we have participated in Operation Christmas Child. For the past three years it has been a part of our VBS celebration to help children understand the importance of giving and of mission. Because of the current COVID-19 situation we were unable to host VBS this year but we wanted to make sure we were still able to participate in this wonderful outreach.
Below are some instructions and helpful tips on how to create a box yourself. You also have the option of simply donating items or money to have our VBS Director build a box on your behalf, or you can build a box online following the link at the bottom of the page.
If you are unable to help at this time we understand! We ask that you please be in prayer for those receiving boxes, building boxes, and delivering boxes!
Thank you in advance for your help in this year's Operation Christmas Child!!
Shoe boxes can also be dropped off here at IUMC and they will be taken to the proper drop off location by the deadline.
There are many places around the world that have been impacted by COVID-19 on a level that we would not be able to understand. Many of these boxes will be going to those areas. This is a way for us to show that God and the world have not forgotten them!
If you do not have time to build your own box or do not feel confident in your box building abilities you have the option to build a box online!
