operation christmas child
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate 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. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 146 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 150 countries and territories. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received.
Sandy Plains Baptist Church participates in this wonderful ministry each year and we are also a drop-off location for other local churches.
New regulations prohibit us from sending candy or toothpaste. Clcik here for a list of suggestions for shoeboxes.
Shoeboxes are available throughout the church. Our ingathering day is Sunday, November 12th.
