Beloit church honored for gift program
BELOIT - After many years of participating in Operation Christmas Child (OCC), one local church received a service award for its dedication to the ministry's cause.
On Sunday, Pastor Mark Reich and OCC Relay Center Coordinator Susie Stroup, both of Beloit Evangelical Friends Church, accepted a service plaque on behalf of the church from OCC Area Coordinator Kim Plichta in recognition of Beloit Friends eight years of participation as a relay center.
"It's an honor to be recognized, but it's not about me. What's more important is that a child receives the gift of salvation," said Stroup.
Beloit Friends will continue with its service by participating as a relay center again during National Collection Week November 17-24.
OCC, a Samaritan's Purse project, has been distributing preprinted shoe boxes called "Go" boxes, which will be filled with gifts to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to impoverished children around the world, according to the organization. Since 1993, the ministry of Samaritan's Purse International Relief has delivered boxes to more than 100 million boys and girls in more than 130 countries. Samaritan's Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the gospel. For more information visit samaritanspurse.org.
