Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse that brings joy & hope to children in need. Pack a gift filled shoebox and bring the Good News of God’s love to children around the world. Be sure to include $9 cash or a check payable to Samaritan's Purse for shipping and handling. (You can write one check for multiple boxes.) Or, make your donation online and print out your EZ Label to Follow Your Box to find out the country where your box will be delivered. We will be handing out empty shoeboxes that you can fill and bring back on our Shoebox Collection Sundays - 11/4, 11/11, and 11/18.
Community Packing Party - 11/21 on the basketball courts Join us from 12-2pm after service to pack shoeboxes together. Boxes and supplies will be provided. There will be a station to write a love note to the child who will be receiving your box and you can pay for the shipping and handling when you turn in your box. This is a great missions opportunity for any and every age.
Not able to pack a shoebox, but you still want to help? You can adopt a box that has already been packed by paying for the $9 shipping. We will also be collecting donations to pack additional shoeboxes. Look for our Operation Christmas Child table in the back of the auditorium the next three Sundays.
Drop Off Location Epicentre is now a recognized Drop-off Location, meaning that others from the community can turn in their shoeboxes to us. If you would like to help with receiving shoeboxes during National Collection Week (Mon 11/12- Mon 11/19), email firstname.lastname@example.org for the sign up sheet or sign up on Sunday at the table.
Help us reach our goal of 600 shoeboxes! Each shoebox = one child so that would mean 600 children that get to hear the gospel message and receive a tangible gift of love.
