Shoes for Orphan Souls

A ministry of 
 has distributed more than 20 million pairs of new shoes to vulnerable children in the United States and to orphans in 74 countries around the world. Orphanages do not receive enough funding to support the children in their care. One of the greatest and most immediate needs is a pair of shoes. Many of the children receive one pair of shoes to last the entire year, and some don’t have shoes at all.
 
VBS COLLECTION OF SHOES – During Vacation Bible School our children collect new shoes to donate to Shoes for Orphan Souls
 
Hundreds of shoes are donated each year, and we always aim to increase that number. We hope you”ll help!

OUTREACH IN ACTION!
 
“You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works.” James 2:22 ESV
BLESSINGS BOX IS UP AND RUNNING!!!!
 
Give what you can. Take what you need. Above all, be Blessed!
 
Our box is up and running! Everyone is invited to help keep filled. Non-perishable foods, cans with pop tops, socks, undies, gloves, soap, deodorant…you get the idea. Leave in the box, or bring to the front office. We hope ANY of our neighbors will take what helps. Our only wish is that we have something needed, and that God will lead them to what they need.
 
First Christian Church Plano’s Outreach team prays that God not only leads those that need just a little something to our box, but Outreach prays that God will keep those in need safe, healthy, back on their feet, and ALWAYS in God’s loving hand!
 

We pray these supplies get to those that need

BLESSINGS BOX INSTALLATION
 
Give what you can. Take what you need. Above all, be Blessed!
 
We are well on our way to having the Blessings Box installed and running, for our friends in the neighborhood who just might need a little something extra. Anyone can put as little as 1 can of food or pair of socks, or as much as you can. Anyone can grab what they need, when they need. This box is here to serve your needs! 
 
2018 Point In Time Homeless Census
 
As a hot spot for the Collin County Homeless Coalition
, we took part in the National homeless census. We were one of 4 hot spots in Plano. Gave drinks and snacks, as well as care packs for our neighbors. Thanks to all that helped in this very important day, as this gives the counties and cities their funds to helps all those in need.
 
 
Need a service project for your cub scouts? Does your high schooler need volunteer hours? Are you looking for a way to serve the community or beyond? This is why we are here! Always remember, we are here to not only spread the Word, but to be the Word. To use our gifts to serve, as Jesus served.
 
“Even as the Son of Man came not to  be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom to many.” Matthew 20:28
