A Word from the Librarian     Ideabox     Online Library

Announcements     Library Support & Resources   



I think most of you know that there are at least two ministries that I love. One is the Library Ministry and the other is the OCC Shoebox Ministry. I am blessed to be able to combine the two ministries that I love. My prayer is that some others in our church will grow to love them both the way that I do. So, shoeboxes are truly a Labor of Love. I continue to learn more about the impact that a simple gift can make in the life of a child and many times for their family and friends also. Remember, the children that receive a shoebox are also introduced to Jesus. Many of them accept Jesus Christ as a direct result of a simple shoebox gift. Last year there were 11.6 million shoeboxes collected and there were 5.8 million children that accepted Christ last year! Our church had a part in that remarkable statistic. My prayer is that this ministry continues to grow not only in our church but around the world. 

    I also would like to CHALLENGE ALL families to prepare one shoebox for each child in your family, but don’t stop there. Parents, I want to challenge you to make boxes too! Every year there are not enough boxes for 10-14 year old boys. So, I encourage you to make those boxes for 10-14 year old boys. If you have questions come talk to me in the library. I have already put some GO boxes with brochures in the library that you can use or feel free to use any regular shoebox. Return your completed shoeboxes to the library and place them by the circulation desk. Make sure you have already taken care of the shipping by either including the $9 with your shoebox or making the $9 shipping donation online. If you make this donation online, you can Follow Your Box and receive a tracking label. Attach the label to your shoebox, and use Samaritan’s Purse Look-Up Tool to find out the country where your box will be delivered.

Alabama Baptist Convention State Board of Missions

We are blessed here in Alabama. There are states where church libraries do not have the support of their State Baptist Board of Missions, and because of that do not have the organization that we do. Some states have discontinued their state library workshops. We have a great support system here in Alabama from people like Mike Jackson in the Discipleship & Family Ministries at our State Board of Missions. Be sure to check their website often to keep up with all that is going on in your organization. The website is www.alsbom.org.
