We are just over a week away from having our annual Youth Operation Christmas Child packing party. For the past 10+ years, Fellowship Student Ministries has been kicking off the OCC season here at Fellowship. October 16th, we will do it again.
During our normal youth timeframes (6:00 Pm to 8:00 Pm we will be combining the middle school and High school together), we are opening up the ‘OCC gift store’ so the youth can purchase items that have been bought for the last year at huge discounts. This enables the youth to maximize the amount of boxes they fill.
We are asking that every youth tries to earn as much money through cleaning, mowing, babysitting or any other chores or work they can find to do in the next week (we are hoping for between $20 or more). The evening is a very fun time of impact & worship through giving generously.
Last year the youth collected 290 boxes combined!!! That is an amazing amount however I have challenged them to collect 350 boxes this year, at the dire cost of my beard! We need your help making this happen for them, Here is how we can do that. First, we need our youth to earn money. If you have friends or family that need work done, have your son/daughter work for them to earn money. We also want to invite as many friends to this event as possible. The more people, the more boxes, so invite invite invite!
We also need some energetic volunteers to help out in the workshop. If you are interested, e-mail Fozzy
We look forward to lots of fun as we impact the world one box, one child, one Gospel message at a time!
