Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child Continues Despite COVID

Now more than ever, children need great joy!  This Christmas, you can give kids in need a tangible expression of God’s love through a gift-filled shoebox.

There are two ways to participate:

Option 1:  Boxes will be made available at the church for pick up.   Pack the shoebox/es with gifts such as stuffed animals, balls, toys, school supplies, and hygiene items.  (If you are not comfortable visiting stores, consider ordering items from Amazon or another mail-order company.)  Along with a $9 donation per box for shipping and processing, return the boxes to Shady Grove. 

Option 2: In just a few clicks, you can pack a shoebox online.
