Mrs. Cosculluela’s third grade class, along with the assistance of several room parents, took the time to put together boxes filled with toys, candy and hygiene items for children to receive at Christmas time through the Operation Christmas Child program sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse. FCS will collect filled shoeboxes through November 20th. For more information, click here: Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes
As shoebox gifts are distributed, local pastors or church leaders present the Gospel in a fun way designed for kids while family and friends listen in. Along with their shoebox gift, children also receive The Greatest Gift, a colorful presentation of the Gospel in their own language.
Their shoebox is the first gift many children have ever received! The treasures and personal letters inside communicate that someone cares for them and give them an opportunity to experience the love of God.
After receiving shoebox gifts, boys and girls are invited to enroll in The Greatest Journey, a 12-lesson discipleship program. They learn from trained local volunteers what it means to faithfully follow Christ and share their faith with others.
God bless all of our students and families who contribute shoeboxes to this worthwhile project.
