Our VBS Mission

I am very excited to announce that the mission for VBS this year will be Operation Christmas Child!!! The kids will be collecting items to fill boxes. They will also be watching videos and learning more about Operation Christmas Child during mission time. It's so much fun to see the kids get excited about giving to other kids. I can't wait until VBS!!!! Now, to find and wrap 100 shoeboxes in the next two weeks... or get 100 shoebox tubs donated... ;)

  1. Our church used to have penny marches for the mission project of the VBS year. I asked one year if we could do it for shoe boxes. Each night I counted the pennies and wrapped the number of shoe boxes it would fill and stacked them on the stage. It grew to 85 boxes. During the parent night I showed a video and spoke a little about OCC and asked for donations to cover the shipping. We got enough for 75 boxes--so we paid for the last 10. Then we had a packing party to fill the boxes later in the year. It was a fun project. I hope yours goes well and many are inspired to take part yearly in OCC.
