The time has come again for the community to come together to send gifts to needy children all over the world! Operation Christmas Child has participants all over the US, and the world.

Operation Christmas Child 640x260

My friend Donna, from Texas describes OCC perfectly:

OCC is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse.  They encourage families to pack shoeboxes full of small gifts for children, collect said shoeboxes and distribute them all over the world along with written materials in each child’s own language that shares the gospel of Jesus Christ.

What better way can we show the love of Christ at Christmas time?

I’ve been coordinating a Blogger Project to spread the word about OCC, and it has been so fun to see families all over the country who are excited about packing shoeboxes! It makes me proud to live in li’l ol’ Boone, NC, the home of Samaritan’s Purse!

Anyway, many church congregations around the High Country are haveing packing parties and dedicated Shoebox drop-off Sundays, and this Friday it’s happening at Laurel Springs Baptist Church in Deep Gap.  It’s going to be a really fun time for the whole family!

Screening of the new Veggie Tales Movie, Saint Nicholas!

No need to bring anything, just come and pack!

If you’re nervous about going to a new church for an event, let me assure you.  I went to the Fall Festival there on Saturday, and everyone was so nice! And just look for Jen, from One Mom’s World, she’ll be there, and I may take the girls, too!

Here is a preview of Saint Nicholas
