Operation Christmas Child
The Amazing Journey of a Shoebox Gift Begins with You and Results in Evangelism, Discipleship, and Multiplication.
Operation Christmas Child “Shoeboxes”
A reminder — we have a collection box in the church’s Gathering Place for any items donated for our packing party. The shoeboxes are available for you to pick up and fill. Suggested items for each age level are listed by the boxes.
Our Christmas Child Shoebox collection day is Sunday, November 13th .
Join the Packing Party!
We will have a Packing Party on Saturday, November 12th at 10:00am in the church’s Gathering Place. There we can fill shoeboxes with items donated for the Operation Christmas Child cause. If you have a partially filled box at that time you may bring it down and finish stuffing it full! Our Christmas Child Shoebox collection day is Sunday, November 13th .

Hand in Hand Farm
Hand In Hand Farm has been partnering with Christ Community for almost ten years now.
We appreciate the mission support, but the greater blessing has been that of having a safe church to bring vulnerable families to so that they can experience the love and support of a church family while they learn about God and Jesus. Christ Community has been that church family.
When you look out over the sanctuary during the service, one sees a lot of grey hair. The uninformed would think that this is a church on the way out, elders without another generation to succeed them. What they don’t see are all of the grandparents here, ready to nurture the future generations that are brought through these doors.
Most of you have heard about Hand In Hand Farm through our presentations. If you want to find out more about what we do, it’s easy to Google us and find our website and Facebook page. However, it’s more important to us that you know about YOUR role in what comes AFTER Hand In Hand Farm, the church family that’s needed to provide support for families for the rest of their lives.
