Operation Christmas Child

operation-christmas-childEach year, Operation Christmas Child coordinates the shipping of Christmas gift boxes to needy children around the world. Many of these children have never received a gift before. Many of them have never heard about Jesus. Along with the gift box, the children also receive a Bible story book which shares the gospel message in their own language. They also receive the opportunity to attend a 12-lesson discipleship course for children at a local Christian church. Many children and their families become Christians through this outreach.occ-shopping-calendar_sm
This year we packed and shipped 41 boxes. A big THANK YOU and thanks to God for everyone that helped make this ministry possible! This year at Vacation Bible School, the children brought offerings to support Operation Christmas Child. Our Wee Disciples Preschool children also brought offerings to send boxes.

I’m looking forward to doing this again next year. Here’s a nice plan that will help us prepare!
