Fill a shoebox!

“Every gift-filled shoebox is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship—transforming the lives of children and their families around the world through the Good News of Jesus Christ!” - Operation Christmas Child

Collection Dates: Nov. 16-23

Last year, Bethel collected 1,417 shoeboxes from our generous community! 538 of those shoeboxes were from the people of Bethel Church, which was a record breaker for us! (89 more than 2018!)

Pack a shoebox:

Collection site: Fergus Falls Campus
(Boxes can also be brought to Bethel Battle Lake on Sundays and will be delivered to Fergus Falls)
  1. Grab a shoebox in the foyer, take it home and fill it with gifts, and return it during the above dates. (Stop by during the week to grab a box, as well)
  2. Suggested donation*: $9.00 (covers shipping costs) *optional
  3. Download the instructions and suggested gift list or grab a hard copy at the Connection Center.
