We love Operation Christmas Child here at First Fairhope!

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S

How to pack a Shoebox:
Shoeboxes are located at the Gathering Space at Church. Labels and lists are there too. But here are some guidelines to help you when you are out shopping: 
Start with a quality “wow” item such as a stuffed animal, soccer ball with pump, or clothing outfit that will capture the child’s attention the instant he or she opens the box. See gift suggestions according to age and gender listed below for other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies to fill the shoebox.

Candy; toothpaste; gum; used or damaged items; scary or war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food; seeds; fruit rolls or other fruit snacks; drink mixes (powdered or liquid); liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans.
Here is a link to gift ideas for your shoeboxes by age of child: OCC Gift Suggestions

D-LIFE GROUPS at FIRST

The purpose of D-Life is to equip believers with a biblical disciple-making process and to empower them with a simple disciple-making tool for a lifestyle of making and multiplying disciples--anytime and anywhere. We have new groups forming all the time. If you are interested in being involved in a D-Life group please contact Shawn Trotter at strotter@firstfairhope.org or call the church at 251-928-8685
