Operation Christmas Child

From October 16 - November 20 we have an opportunity to participate in Operation Christmas Child! Their mission is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Through this project, Samaritan’s Purse partners with the local church worldwide to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and make disciples of the nations. The project delivers not only the joy of what, for many kids, is their first gift ever, but also gives them a tangible expression of God’s love.

A message from Samaritan's Purse:
“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine…because of your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”– Philippians 1:3-6

How wonderful it is to see the power of our God at work through the amazing impact of shoeboxes in the lives of boys and girls around the world. Not only does each child receive a heartfelt gift, but they also have the opportunity to hear about the greatest gift of all—Jesus Christ! Your church plays an important role in children coming to know Christ through Operation Christmas Child. We greatly value your partnership, generosity, and prayer for this ministry, knowing that God is doing great things through your church. Today we are excited to share something special with you! We want to express our gratitude for your partnership in the Gospel. That’s why we’ve created a video specifically for you! 

Pick up a box starting October 16 and bring it back filled with gifts to participate and be apart of this huge blessing! We are open for pick up or drop off in the Sanctuary Foyer at these times: 
Sundays: 8am - 1pm & 5:30 - 8pm 
Monday - Friday: 8:30am - 4:30pm 
Closed Saturdays
