Any one ready to shop for Christmas? Hilliard Church of Christ is partnering with Lifeline Christian Mission to bless children in the countries in which they serve. We invite you to join Lifeline Christian Mission’s Christmas Shoebox challenge. Help bless the children who are without sponsors that are in Lifeline’s schools, as well as the children in their churches and communities. These gifts are a great tool to share the love of Christ with thousands of children.
Lifeline needs over 3,000 Christmas shoebox gifts per year. Hilliard Church of Christ would like to send 300 shoebox gifts to Lifeline!
If you would like to fill a shoebox, there are lists on the display table in the foyer. These are in four categories by age. You decide if you would like to fill your shoebox for a girl or boy. Simply choose one of the lists. Then start shopping. Walmart has plastic shoeboxes with a lid that work perfectly. I have an example of each of the four categories on the display table in the foyer. I will also be at the table Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 to answer any questions you have.
Lifeline asks for $5 to help cover the cost of shipping. Please tape the shipping money to the lid of your Christmas Shoebox. However, that does not fully cover shipping. If you would rather donate money for shipping instead of filling a shoebox, that is an option as well. Please place the money in an envelope marked “Lifeline Christian Mission Shoebox Drive”.
Please place your filled shoebox or shipping donation on the display table by Sunday, July 22.
