Operation Christmas Child is a program of Samaritan’s Purse that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God’s love! Samaritan's Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God's love through His son, Jesus Christ. Grateful to have such an amazing organization still at work in our community assisting with Hurricane Harvey clean up!
Operation Christmas Child provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on missions project while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas—Jesus Christ, God’s greatest gift. After opening their shoebox gifts, many of the children read Gospel literature in their own language telling them about God’s love through the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ. Many of their parents were reading the booklets as well.
They have a helpful phone app to guide you into what to include in your boxes. You can bring your finished boxes to church on Sunday, November 19th.
