Cross Creek is relay point for Operation Christmas Child

First Posted: 11/3/2014

Cross Creek Community Church, located two miles from the light in Trucksville at 370 Carverton Road, will be a relay center, collecting gift-filled shoe boxes, again this year for Operation Christmas Child.

Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project, brings joy and hope to needy children around the world through these gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God’s love. Since 1993, shoe box gifts have been delivered to children in more than 130 countries.

Shoe boxes may be dropped off at the church anytime between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday, Nov. 17 through Friday, Nov. 21, from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 22 and from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18 and Thursday, Nov. 20.

Participants may stop at the church to pick up their instructions on how to pack the shoe boxes.

For more information, call the church office at 570-696-0399.
