Christmas Shoeboxes

For many years, members of First Baptist Church have traveled to the Samaritan’s Purse distribution center to help organize the huge volume of filled shoe boxes that will be shipped all over the world to provide Christmas gifts for needy children.

This year, 2016, we had over 140 Shoeboxes donated by FBC.

Here’s the FBC group that traveled to Charlotte for this special occasion.  What a great group!  Thanks FBC!
