At Grant Memorial, we desire to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our world. First Peter 4:10 invites each follower of Jesus to “use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” Every one of us has been uniquely equipped by God to serve others and extend grace in a variety of ways! As we each steward this incredible reality, Jesus invites us into sharing that which we have been entrusted: “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you” (John 20:21).

For the past 20 years, Grant Memorial Church has been involved in the packing and collection of shoeboxes in Winnipeg. This year, once our shoe boxes are packed and en route, we are excited to offer you the opportunity to “follow your box” and take part in a short term mission trip to the Operation Christmas Child warehouse in Calgary, AB. Volunteers would have the opportunity to help inspect and make ready the millions of shoeboxes collected and waiting for international shipment. Your involvement will make a direct impact on blessing children around the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are looking for a team of 6-10 people who are passionate about OCC. Team members must be 14 years of age to participate, but minors must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. This will be a physically active outreach trip where volunteers will need to be able to stand/participate in light activity for approximately 5 hours each day.
