“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10      

Operation Christmas Child collects shoeboxes filled with gifts and delivers them to children in need around the world.  Every shoebox is an opportunity to spread the Gospel.  This year our church and school had the privilege of not only filling many shoeboxes but to also be the “Drop-off Location” for Bluffton & the surrounding community. 

This year The Church Of The Cross filled over 1,000 shoeboxes.  But that was only the beginning.  During our collection week we sorted, counted and crated a total of 2,575 shoeboxes. 

None of this would have been possible without God’s love and prayers flowing in the hearts of all the donors and volunteers.  We are so very thankful to all of you.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY, GREAT THINGS HE HAS DONE.
