Operation Christmas Child partners with churches worldwide to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  After receiving shoebox gifts, many children are discipled through their Bible study course, The Greatest Journey, where they learn to become faithful followers of Christ and share their faith with others.  

This year was an exciting year for First Baptist and our collection of Operation Christmas Child Boxes.  We held a Box Packing Party on November 8 where church members came and packed 300 boxes with items that had been collected.  We appreciate so much the work of Sheila and Tatiana in organizing this event.  

On Sunday, November 22 we were able to combine the boxes from the Packing Party with other boxes that had been given by church members for a total of 501 boxes.  What a blessing it was to see all of the boxes lined up in our Worship Center.  After worship services, the boxes were loaded into vehicles to transport to the Collection Center.  Thank you all so much for your help!
