Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a 'global Christmas gift exchange' project operated by Samaritan's Purse. Each November Christ Church joins in this project as Samaritan’s Purse collects thousands of shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, personal items, and other gifts. These boxes are then distributed as Christmas gifts. Included in their box is a booklet, in their language, which tells them of God's love. Afterward children are encouraged to return to the local church for a six-week class to learn more about Jesus.
Prayer is the cornerstone of Operation Christmas Child. Please pray for this initiative. That the shoebox gifts that the children will receive will be a blessing and that they will learn of of God’s love for them.
