Operation Christmas Child – Shoeboxes

Operation Christmas Child is simple; you purchase toys, stuffed animals, school supplies, etc. and place them in shoe boxes. The boxes are distributed through churches in countries around the world and given to children as gifts to share the Christmas message. Samaritan’s Purse asks for a $9 donation to be included for each box to help cover distribution costs, but it is not mandatory.
 
The Welcome Center has labels, boxes, and an information sheet for your convenience. You may drop the shoeboxes off at the church during the month of November from 9a-1p. On November 20th we will place them on the stage and at the end of the service Steve will lead us in a blessing over the boxes and the children that receive them. For more info contact Carla Camp gorccamp@yahoo.com


Branches Sticker

The Marketing Team has designed a sticker for you to have for your car, truck, boat, bike, skateboard or wherever you want to show it off. They are FREE at the Branches Welcome Center. You will notice www.15-five.com on the bottom of the sticker. That’s the verse that Branches was founded on, and it’s an easy, shorter way to remember how to get to us online.
We hope that this will let you show off how much we all love our Branches family. We want people to know that at Branches, you can B-real, B-belong and B-believe.
