Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child brings good news and great joy through the power of a simple gift. What goes into a shoebox is fun, but what comes out is eternal. As children receive gift-filled shoeboxes they hear the Gospel. You can have a role in reaching millions of children with God's love by supporting this project of Samaritan's Purse. It's time to fill a shoe box, or a plastic shoe box, or use the boxes provided during the
month of Oct. Due date to have completed boxes in is Nov. 10. Instructions on how to fill a box will be provided. Last year we donated 33 shoes boxes. We have donated as high as 50 boxes. Let's give a child the great joy of knowing that Jesus and you love them.
