Way To Go Kids!!! 120 Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes!
The VBS kids are amazing! As soon as they knew that our mission was Operation Christmas Child, they rallied together and filled the collection bin... overflowing I might add! Altogether, they brought in enough items to fill 120 shoeboxes!!! WOW! We set goals for them at 40, 60, 75, and 100 shoeboxes. They blew those completely out of the water! Their rewards? They got to cover the youth sponsors (Devon, Kevin, and Dan) in syrup, chocolate syrup, bacon bits, and feathers... throw pies in their faces... and then they had to jump into a pool of slime! (Pictures to follow) The kids came up with most of their rewards on their own! GROSS! But they loved it! Way to go kids!
And the part that I love most? Every one of these boxes represents a child that will get a Christmas gift AND hear about Jesus because of the VBS kids!
It's not too late to sponsor one of these boxes to be shipped at $7.00 each! Lisa will be set up in the back of the sanctuary on Sunday or let me know if you want to sponsor a box. We will also have VBS CDs and some soda and candy available at the "6th day of VBS" if you want to help support Operation Christmas Child.
Also, YARD SALE at my house on July 13-14th to raise shipping money for the boxes!
These boxes are not yet packed! We will be packing the boxes with the VBS items and any other items the congregation collects on Sunday November 4th after the church service! JOIN US!
