STONINGTON — In 2020, Pastor Scott Parks led his two Stonington congregations, First Baptist Stonington and Old Stonington Baptist Church to work together in Operation Christmas Child’s Shoebox ministry. Parks said, “Last year, the two churches did an amazing job, putting together a total of 72 shoeboxes filled with gifts for children around the world.” The shoeboxes contain toys, shirts, socks, crayons, coloring books, and other gifts. Parks added, “This year, the two churches more than doubled last year’s total with 153 shoeboxes packed. Just incredible!”
This past week, the shoeboxes were taken to one of the drop-off locations in Decatur to begin their journey to children in various parts of the world. The shoeboxes also contain Bible lessons and teaches the children about Christ, Parks said.
