While you’re scrolling to find out how to enter the giveaway, don’t miss these Last Minute Tips for Collection Week:


Keep Praying

We all need mental reminders to pray for others.  How ‘bout this one:


Put on your Shoes and Pray for Your Shoebox


Be Excited

Some people get quietly excited, some people get excited-excited.

And some people just Si.

Uncle Si's got style!

Use your style to tell others about Operation Christmas Child.


Sharing opportunities with others isn’t boasting about what you are doing;

it’s stirring up love and good works, encouraging others to participate

in the work of God

by the power of the Holy Spirit.

“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works.” Hebrews 10:24
