Operation Christmas Child packing Party

You have an amazing opportunity as a family to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. 

How does it work?

First you choose whether you want to buy gifts for a boy or girl in the age range of 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14.

Then, using the packing guidelines, purchase school supplies, toys, clothes, and write a personal note to your child.

Finally, bring everything you’ve purchased to the packing party Wednesday, November 17th. You will receive your box when we start packing. Click Here for more info and for packing instructions. 

Remember that our packing party is going to be Wednesday, November 17th at 6:30pm. We will meet in the chapel first for a quick devotion and then packing instructions. We will then move to the Family Center where there will be areas for you and your family to spread out and pack your box.

THANK YOU again for choosing to be a part of this year’s Operation Christmas Child with us.

Parent Tip of the Month

Kids can be pretty mean. Whether it’s mean comments, gossip, rumors, or even more serious concerns like bullying, kids deal with a lot — sometimes as victims and sometimes as perpetrators. So what can we do? Here are a few ideas: 1. Call it out. 2. Provide support. 3. Help them manage their emotions. 4. Build their confidence. 5. Intervene when necessary.

Resource of the Month

Now that so much of what our kids are learning are online, we need to be better about selecting content that is valuable, and making the most out of kids’ online experiences. There are dozens of resources out there but we can start with the smart tips from THIS ARTICLE.
