Operation Christmas Child | 2016 Packing Party

We are so excited to announce that KidJam/KidStuf and Uturn are partnering up to do Operation Christmas Child this fall! As we study the Bible we see that God talks about giving rather than receiving, loving our neighbors, and acting out our faith. What better way to teach our children about giving and loving people than by packaging shoeboxes for kids all around the world to receive for Christmas!

Each week we will be sending home a themed packing list of items that your child can bring the following Wednesday or Sunday. We hope you have a blast with your kids talking about why we give. Involve them in the shopping process and pray over the kids that will receive the items!

On Wednesday, November 2nd we will have a Packing Party with KidJam + Uturn! Our Uturn students will help the kids pack their own box and write a letter to the child who will receive their box. Leaders will also be taking a Polaroid photo of each kid to include with the letter. Often recipients of the boxes will write back thanking you so be sure to remember to send your child with their mailing address that evening. We would love for parents to join us this night! Our goal is for LCF Church to pack 200 boxes so please join us for a night of fun!
