Join Us In Packing Shoebox Filled Gifts For Children!
Operation Christmas Child collects shoebox gifts‑filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items—and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. Many of these children have never received a gift before, some come from cultures that do not exchange gifts. Delivered into the hands of children through local churches, every shoebox gift is an opportunity to share about Jesus Christ and God’s gift of salvation.
Boxes are available in the Crossway to take home and fill! Please return your filled shoeboxes by November 13th.

You can also include a personalized message and photo. Many of the shoeboxes built online are distributed in areas of the world where the gospel is not easily shared. Every shoebox gift is an opportunity to share about Jesus Christ and God’s gift of salvation.
Your $25 online donation includes all items, shipping, and presentation of the gospel. You will also be able to find out later what country the shoebox you sent was delivered through the Follow Your Box label code.
