OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD


Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 178 million gift-filled shoe-boxes to children in more than 160 countries and territories. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoe-box is the first gift they have ever received.

Pick up shoe-boxes at church

There are two types of shoe-boxes available. One is a special cardboard box and the other is a reusable plastic box. There is a small charge for the plastic box. You can also pick up packing instructions with suggested contents.

Return filled shoe-boxes by Sunday, November 15

Once you have filled your shoe-boxes, make sure to pray over them. Every shoe-box creates an opportunity for a child to hear the gospel and be introduced to Jesus. Then bring them to church any Sunday before November 15th.

If you can't make it to church to pick up or drop off a shoe-box

With the COVID-19 pandemic isolating some people at home, you may not be able to get to church to pick up or drop off a box. We would like everyone to have an opportunity to bless children around the world.
