Make a Child Smile!
Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God’s love. Since 1993, more than 135 million shoe boxes have been packed, shipped, and delivered across the globe. For many of the recipients it’s the first gift they have ever received. People of all ages can be involved in this simple, hands-on missions project while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas—Jesus Christ.
This year's campaign runs through November 18. Participation is easy! 1.) Pick up a box in the narthex (along with a handout telling how to pack your box, and a label). 2.) Fill your box with an assortment of gifts for a single child. Click here for an expanded list of gender and age appropriate gift suggestions. 3.) Return your box (or boxes!) by Sunday, November 20.
Our Operation Christmas Child campaign is sponsored by Children's Ministy but it's open to everyone! Make a child smile!
