3. Gives local churches an effective outreach tool
4. Makes disciples through local churches
5. Multiplies as children share their faith with friends and family
6. Is growing congregations and planting new churches worldwide
How to Make a Difference
Join us as we dedicate four weeks to collecting items that bring joy to children all over the world.
Each week has a different theme, but items brought in are not limited to that theme. The fourth week is a giant church-wide packing party when we fill the boxes with every thing we've collected. It's a terrific way for us to get involved in the evangelism and discipleship of children around the world!
