The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to show God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world and, together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Over the years we have sent many boxes from Christ Church and Emmanuel and we are hoping to participate in 2023 as well.
There are a number of ways in which you can get involved:
PACK A SHOEBOX ONLINE
This is a very easy and straightforward way to send a shoebox. Simply go online to the Samaritan’s Purse website here where you can choose items to fill a box and make your donation.
PACK A COMPLETE SHOEBOX YOURSELF
Boxes and the leaflets explaining what to do are available in church either on a Sunday or from Emma in the Office.
DONATE TOWARDS THE COST OF A BOX
You may like to contribute a financial gift to go towards the cost of a shoebox. Details of how to do so are below.
PRAY for this important ministry, particularly for all those children who will receive a box to learn of the love of God.
