    Our own Bryson Shook works for Samaritans' Purse and the  Operation Christmas Child Ministry. Click on his picture to read more about what his job entails! Recently, he was able to accompany a group to a Shoebox distribution in the Dominican Republic. Watch a video of his experience HERE and listen to his message of encouragement, the importance of this ministry, and how you can continue to support Operation Christmas Child during this time.

  • Handmade items and craft ideas

    Our craft Guru, Stephanie Parker, shares this idea of a craft that can be done at home. This is kid friendly, and would be a great family activity. Click HERE for instructions and details. Our children loved making crafts for Operation Christmas Child last year during VBS. Other ideas for your children include making cards and drawing pictures to place in our shoeboxes. Many of you have skills to sew, crochet, and are "crafty" people. Consider using those skills to make handmade items for our shoeboxes.

  • Online SHopping Links

    While you are unable to go shopping at retail stores for shoebox items, you can shop online! Here are some ideas:

    Dollar Tree - Lots of toy options, school supplies, tools, and many other items.

    Oriental Trading - Crafts, toys, coloring books, you name it, they have it!

    Walmart - Check the clearance items, especially for seasonal finds.

    Amazon - Need we say more?
