Operation Christmas child

Operation Christmas Child takes the Good News of Jesus to the ends of the earth through a shoebox.  Each box is unique and gives the child who receives it a glimpse of how much God loves them.  Help us reach our goal of 200 Shoeboxes this year.  You can pack it yourself, purchase items to put in boxes, or donate money to purchase items or cover the shipping on boxes that our kids pack.  More information is available in the Welcome Center.
