Operation Christmas Child

Thank you once again to those who  supported this last year.

We will be supporting the project again this year. Each box is to contain something to wear, something to play with, something for school, something to love, something special and something for personal hygiene for boys and girls in ages 2-14 years. The boxes from New Zealand generally go to Asia or Pacific   Island country.

You are all invited to support this by providing items as above or make a contribution towards transport costs which is $10.00 per box. If you wish to fill your own box please remember to include the transport cost of $10.00. A box will be in each foyer for you to put in the items or leave the donation. I will have a supply of the OCC boxes available soon. For further information contact Judith 688 6004.

Christian Superstore Timaru, 102 Stafford Street, Timaru: 

  • Fathers’ Day is coming and we have a great selection of books, mugs, cards and gifts available for the “Father” figure in your life.
  • Myles Munroe in his book explores “The Fatherhood Principle” discussing the design that God has for man and their identity within a family and community.
  • Derek Prince follows up this same theme in his book “Husbands and Fathers” and the purpose that God has for men both in a spiritual and physical example in life.
  • While in her tract Jenny Kutz explores the meaning and relationship that we all can have with “Abba” Father that we can have a heavenly Father that we can accept adoption into Abba’s family. A home not of this world.

Sometimes we can confuse our role in life and each of these books reflects on who we are in God and empowers each of us to become more of who we truly are on the inside.

The volunteers at your local Christian Bookshop look forward to seeing you soon.
