Rivertree will once again this year be collecting filled shoe boxes for children around the world that will be distributed by Samaritan’s Purse Ministries. The last collection date will be November 15. Now is the time to start shopping to fill your shoebox. Did you know that: As shoebox gifts are distributed, local pastors or church leaders present the Gospel in a fun way designed for kids while family and friends listen in? Along with their shoebox gift, children also receive The Greatest Gift, a colorful presentation of the Gospel in their own language. It’s not just about the toys but it is about the Gospel and bringing glory to God through the gifts in a Shoe Box.
