Operation Christmas Child

THE DEADLINE FOR HANDING IN YOUR SHOEBOXES IS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24TH

The National Collection Week is November 18-24th, 2019.

Operation Christmas Child is a fun and simple, hands-on project of Samaritan’s Purse that anyone can participate in. Each gift-filled shoebox is used to bless the life of a child living in a desperate situation. Children can learn more about having a personal relationship with Jesus through a voluntary discipleship program that is offered.

  • Each shoebox that is packed carries the power of a simple message; that God cares for and loves the child who receives it.
  • Children are offered "The Greatest Gift of All", an illustrated storybook in their local language explaining how God sent His only Son.
  • Children who receive gift-filled shoeboxes are often living in situations affected by war, poverty, and natural disaster.

MCBC has participated in Operation Christmas Child since 2002, collecting 90 filled shoeboxes. There has been a steady increase each year with a total of 276 boxes collected last year. Let's work hard to surpass that number this year!
