Operation Christmas Child
Shoeboxes

Now through November 21

It's that time of year to pack a shoebox and give this wonderful gift to a child somewhere in the world and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ. 

 

Since 1993, over 198 million boys and girls in more than 170 countries and territories have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child.  Click below to see the excitement.

 

 

 

The amazing journey of a shoebox gift begins with you and results in evangelism, discipleship, and multiplication.  Click below to discover how.

Boxes will be available in the foyer beginning Sunday, October 2 through November 6. Packed shoeboxes will be due back on Sunday, November 13. 

 

For any other questions or details, you may contact Lisa Rethemeyer at lisa@the-rethemeyers.com
