Operation Christmas Child

Celebrating 25 years of fulfilling the Great Commission!


Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, has collected and delivered more than 157 million shoebox gifts to children in more than 160 countries and territories. This year’s goal is to reach an additional 11 million children with the love of Jesus.

Empty shoe boxes available beginning Sunday, October 14 and in the church office throughout the week.

What goes into the box is fun…what comes out is eternal! Every gift-filled shoe box is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship—transforming the lives of children and their families around the world through the Good News of Jesus Christ. This is a great project for Colonial groups, Sunday School classes, Scout troops, dance teams, Fellowship of Christian Athletes huddles, etc. Start planning your packing party today!
