Operation Gifts for Our Troops

Packing Day

The Military Ministry is collecting items to send as Christmas Gifts to our CFBC men and women stationed around the world. A suggested items list is available in your Life Group room, at the Military Ministry Booth, and below. Please drop off your items for our heroes at the Military Ministry Booth. This year, we will be collecting items throughout the months of September and October, to be packed on Saturday, October 29 at 8am. If you’d like to participate in the packing day, or if you have any questions, please email missions@cfbc.org.

If you know of anyone serving in the armed forces who you want to make sure is included in the gift distribution this year, please help us make sure we have updated mailing information for them. Send any updates to missions@cfbc.org.
