Throughout the year, Laurel Hill collects toys and various supplies for Samaritans Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Ministry. Over the past few years we have collected enough supplies and toys to fill over 4000 boxes. Last year alone we filled 700 plus boxes and this year we are on target to fill over 800. Every November we gather as a church family to fill the boxes on a Friday night so we can put them in our sanctuary for Sunday morning. We then have a prayer over the boxes and for the children who will be receiving them. Once the service is over on Sunday, we line up to fill our church trailer for distribution the following morning at a local collection site.
Watch our calendar in November for the packing party and join us for snacks and loads of fun packing hundreds of boxes in Jesus name.
