Operation Christmas Child

What is Operation Christmas Child?

The world's largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child, uses gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world.

The Greatest Gift Storybook

In addition to hearing the Gospel before they receive their shoebox gift, children also receive The Greatest Gift, a storybook that shares the message of salvation. With the Apostle John as narrator, the booklet shares 11 Scripture stories and invites children to follow Christ. Children take this home to share with family and friends. It is used in more than 80 languages.

How can I get involved?

You can participate by picking up a shoebox from the church, filling it small goods, and returning the shoebox from Nov. 11-19. Watch the video below to get an idea of the process.

You can also volunteer to help collect shoeboxes throughout the week here.
