Operation Christmas Child 2012

News

Last year, Northstar Church collected 106 boxes from members and guests for Operation Christmas Child! We have another opportunity this year to minister to children overseas with the love of Christ! Boxes are due by Sunday, November 11 (Missions Sunday)!

For more information about OCC and how to pack a box, click here. We will have boxes available at BHS this week, but you can pack any shoe box.

Here’s a brief testimony from one of our members, Jennifer Becker, about OCC:

As a high school senior at an FCA meeting, I packed a shoebox of toiletries, toys, & a note with my address and sent it across the ocean, to where I didn’t know, in hopes that it would have some small impact on making one child’s Christmas a little brighter. Eleven years later, I still write to the [not anymore so] small Jamaican boy named Ruvel who opened my shoebox. I am honored to have witnessed him grow from an 11 year old boy into a 22 year old young man who is now going to college and is excited & vocal about how much he loves Jesus. Please pack a shoebox: you don’t know how God may use your small gift in a big way!
