Operation Christmas Child at Crestwood Church

We are delighted to announce the ninth annual Packing Parties for the Crestwood community! This event offers a wonderful opportunity to make a difference both locally and globally. By participating in this initiative, you'll have a direct impact worldwide, as the boxes you pack will be sent to churches internationally, sharing the Gospel of Christ with children. These children, in turn, become messengers of the Word of God, spreading it within their families and communities, thus multiplying the reach and impact of our mission.

To achieve our goal, we require volunteers of all ages to join us in the Crestwood gym to help pack these special boxes. Additionally, we are seeking individuals to assist in managing the event. Please consider signing up for the role that best suits your abilities, and keep the children who will receive these gifts in your thoughts and prayers.

We have three different packing sessions scheduled for this fall, and you're welcome to sign up for as many as you like, taking on different roles if you wish.

If participating in a Packing Party doesn't align with your preferences, we also offer an alternative option. You can pick up boxes to pack at your own convenience. Simply visit the Midlothian Campus during office hours or collect boxes while attending a Sunday Worship Gathering. Any box you pack at home can be dropped off at our Midlothian Campus by November 20th, and we will handle the shipping for you. Each box includes packing instructions, as well as details on how to "Follow My Box," enabling you to track the destination of your box.

Packing a shoebox involves costs for the items included in the box and the shipping to send it to children in need. We invite everyone who participates in the Packing Parties to contribute ANY amount to help cover these costs. Your generosity will ensure that these gifts reach their intended recipients. Thank you!

We can't wait to join forces with you in this exciting opportunity to share the Gospel with cherished children around the world!
