Operation Christmas Child
 

Operation Christmas Child

It's that time of year again — our annual drive for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child shoebox ministry.  Each shoebox is an opporunity to spread the Gospel to some of the most remote areas of the world.  Through these simple gifts, children get a chance to know Jesus and learn to share the Gospel with others through the 12 week discipleship program, “The Greatest Journey.” The fun that goes into the box is only the beginning; the hope and love of Jesus that comes out of the box is eternal.

Starting Sunday, October 15, empty boxes will be available in the narthex for you to take home, fill and return.  Brochures detailing packing information will be included in the boxes.    Our drive ends Sunday, November 12, and all boxes will be delivered that week to Grace Fellowship Church in Timonium for further distribution. The requested donation for each shoebox is $9 a box. This donation amount covers rising shipping expenses and the printing costs for The Greatest Gift booklet that each child receives with his/her shoebox. Monetary gifts are also welcome.   Frequently Asked Questions are available here

Let’s be the hands of Jesus as we pack one or more shoeboxes for needy boys and girls, knowing we will be bringing joy to the hearts of God’s children.
God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him might have eternal life. ~ John 3:16
