Operation Shoebox 2021

 

As you can see from this brief video, Shoe Box Ministry is not just buying more Christmas gifts for someone. The gift filled boxes are given to kids in need and become tools for local churches to share God’s love and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

Trinity has supported the Shoe Box Ministry for many years. This year we suggest doing it a different way, by collecting items for the next few months. This way you won’t get asked for so much, all in the Christmas season. Each month we will ask for certain items and at the end we will pack the boxes and get them sent out. If we get a lot, we’ll have a packing party!

 

If you prefer to pack an entire box yourself, just see Carol Rose or Mary Ann Miller and we will supply you with a box.

 

We will still need the $9 for each box to be shipped.  That can be payed throughout this time, someone willing can just donate that money to the church (marked for Shoe Box Ministry) or you can donate that on line here.

 

Out in the Narthex by the easel, we have guide lines for items and our suggestions for each month. Please help yourself to this list. Under the easel, we have a basket to place your purchased items in at any time.
