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. Since 1990, more than 157 million children in over 160 countries have experienced God’s love the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. From children to seniors, people pack shoebox gifts each year to bless children in need around the world. Parents often use the project to teach their kids about giving.
We have supported this project for many years at St. John’s, last year we collected over 150 boxes, what a great contribution !!
Can we beat it this year ? Leaflets for more details can be found on the Welcome Desk and we also have shoeboxes if you need one.
Boxes should be returned to St. John’s by Sunday, 11th November.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THIS – Emma Wylie
