Northside’s Christmas in July

The Northside family packs Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes in July of each year to bless children around the world who have very little. Gifts and toys are rare, if at all. You can bring incredible joy and blessing to a child through a simple shoebox filled with gifts.  Each shoebox you pack helps local churches in different countries tell a child about Jesus.

Because of Covid-19, many of you have concerns about leaving your home to buy gifts and fill a shoebox. Thankfully, Samaritan’s Purse has made a way that you can “pack” one or more shoeboxes from the safety of your home.  You simply fill a shoebox online. It is fun and easy. Each shoebox will be packed by volunteers with gifts that you choose. To pack a shoebox online CLICK HERE.

If you pack a shoebox online, please let us know by using the form below to tell us how many you have done. We want to celebrate all the boxes Northside has packed when we pray over them on dedication Sunday, July 26.

For some of you, packing a shoebox is a family event or you may just prefer to pack gifts that you have personally chosen. We have shoeboxes available for you in our main foyer. Feel free to come by on Sunday mornings or Monday – Thursday between 9 AM – 4 PM to get a box. For instructions on packing a box CLICK HERE.

Please let us know how many boxes you have done.
