Operation Christmas Child – Collection Day
Our collection week for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes is November 11 – 18 (at noon). Beginning on October 28, there will be an information table beside the Mission Wall in the Worship Center with boxes and other helpful information. Your completed boxes can be left beside the Mission Wall or in the foyer of the Education Building during collection week.
Please note there are some changes this year:
- You can no longer include toothpaste or candy due to customs regulation.
- Please include a $9 donation per box to cover shipping costs and other ministry costs. A portion of the donation helps Samaritan’s Purse train and equip local churches to share the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ in a child-friendly way. Your donation also provides The Greatest Gift Gospel Booklets, which are written in the children’s language and distributed along with shoebox gifts.
