Operation Christmas Child   

Each Christmas we partner with Samaritan’s Purse to fill shoeboxes with toys and other fun items to deliver to children in need around the world. Each gift, which also contains the message of the Gospel of Christ, is prayerfully and uniquely packed and is an opportunity to transform the life of a child, a family, and a community. We collect donations each month and fill the boxes in November. Our goal for 2022 is 175 boxes.
