Operation Christmas Child’s West Central LA Team holds kickoff event

A-OCC 2 May18

Westside Baptist Church’s Operation Christmas Child kickoff week ended with a rummage sale to make money for the shipping of the shoeboxes, buying shoeboxes, and purchasing more shoeboxes. Each shoebox is packed with a “wow” item, hygiene items, school supplies, clothes/shoes/accessories and toys. It’s asked that $9 be included for each shoebox. This money will be used for shipping, purchasing “The Greatest Gift” and “The Greatest Journey,” and training teachers to teach “The Greatest Journey.”

Curtis, Elizabeth and Owen Penrod were excited to receive their GO (Gospel Opportunity) shoeboxes at Westside Baptist Church kickoff for Operation Christmas Church with Samaritan’s Purse. The video “From Shoebox to Bible” was shared with church to teach the far reaching impact of one shoebox. New 2018 resources were given out and interesting facts were shared about the 25th anniversary of Operation Christmas Child.

Pictured are Carol Morgan, Casey Stewart, Nancy Moore, Elaine Faust, Deanna Pearce, Sharlene Settle, Rosanna Stewart, Michelle Williams and Suzanne Bolton.
