A bunch of generous people came out to yesterday’s “Pack the Box!” event. Kids and adults organized, sorted and packed 67 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. Thank you for your generosity, Parkside! The boxes were packed with quality gifts and donated postage received from across our whole church family. There are still more boxes to come in from individuals in our church who are packing one or more boxes on their own.
The boxes will make their way to children in parts of our world that don’t have access to the many things we take for granted. They are a symbol of our love and prayers for them. They are an illustration of the free gift of salvation through the present of Jesus. Please join with us in prayer that many children, families and generations might feel loved by God through one small act of kindness.
