Once the shoe-boxes are filled, dedicated and mailed, its time to begin thinking about the Operation Christmas Child Shoe-boxes for Christmas for the next year.

We know that shopping can been a problem for some, so our committee is happy to do the shopping for you. If you would like us to shop for you, you can write a check, made out to Barcelona Road Baptist Church with either Operation Christmas Child or shoe-boxes on the memo line. If you would prefer to give cash, please put it in an envelope marked Operation Christmas Child or shoe-boxes. Cash or checks may be placed in any offering plate or brought to the church office.
