What is Operation Christmas Child?
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry that allows children the opportunity to be exposed and connected to God, sometimes for the first time. The shoe boxes are filled with toys, hygienic products, and the love of God. These shoe boxes are sent all over the world and are given to children, who otherwise, would not receive a present. With these shoe boxes, the kids are not only receiving a a toy, they are receiving the love of God. Many of these kids have not been given the opportunity to learn who Jesus Christ is.
How Our Church Was Able to Get Involved:
Christmas of 2019 was the first year our Church was blessed with the opportunity to fill shoe boxes for this project. Our Church family was able to take home boxes and fill and personalize them with pictures, cards, toys, and the word of God. We were able to fill and ship 86 boxes to countries all over the world and track them as they traveled to the child that was going to be blessed. We plan to continue and make a tradition of this project in the future.
