Operation Christmas Child – Shoeboxes

Hi Church,

We are changing the way we do “Operation Christmas Child Christmas Boxes” for 2020. We are going to trial a new way of doing them which may help you and save time and money.

As of 2020, each month we will ask you to concentrate on buying specific items, or if you would prefer you can donate money and we will buy them for you. Other churches do this and it works quite successfully.

We are going to aim for 80 Christmas boxes this year, so if this is a mission on your heart please start buying or donating and bring them to church.  We will store them for you and at the end of September, we will pack them and deliver them to Samaritan’s Purse Australia for distribution.

If you have any questions or queries please contact the Belmont Office on 5241 1160.

This month’s focus: Musical Instruments

Suggestions:

RECORDERS (must be able to come apart at Mouthpiece to fit in boxes. Plastic ones are usually better but please check first before purchasing).
MARACAS
CASTANETS
BELLS ON HANDLES
HARMONICA
