It’s that time of year again. Every year, Operation Christmas Child’s Shoebox Collection Week takes place the third week in November when nearly 5,000 drop-off locations are open across the nation. Starting July 23, 2017, New Genesis will be collecting items to place in the Christmas shoe boxes for children ages 2 through 14 years old. The kids of New Genesis Church will be decorating our receiving box, which will be placed in the rear of the church. We encourage everyone to participate in helping bring joy to children in need around the world, during the Christmas season, by blessing a child with a gift box at Christmas. The receiving box will remain in the church until November 5th; after which we will need volunteers to help in packing the boxes and getting them out to the mailing locations. A list of the items needed will be posted on the receiving box to assist you in purchasing just the right items needed for the gift boxes. Further information will be provided in the coming weeks.
Bringing People to Christ – That Is the Fruit of Our Labor
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
Jesus Christ commissioned us, as His followers, to carry on the work of service He started with the original twelve disciples. Today, that same work of service continues forth through those who are chose to follow Christ. Our purpose in this earth, is to bring souls to Christ through spreading the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and ministering the truth of His Holy Word. (John 21:15-17).
Starting in September, we will begin our series on winning souls to Christ. We begin with training, and outreach to the community, which are designed to help you in this work of service to the Lord. For those who have a passion to serve the Lord, in this capacity, please make plans to attend each one of these sessions.
