Every year we collect shoe boxes filled with gifts for Operation Christmas Child. Sometimes when we do a project over and over again, its importance can fade into the background of our minds. But Franklin Graham reminds us: “Our Operation Christmas Child project is about more than coloring books, toys, and toothbrushes. Your gifts enable Samaritan’s Purse to share the good news of God’s greatest gift—His Son, Jesus Christ—with boys and girls who need to know how much Jesus loves them.”

This year, we’re hoping to collect 125 shoes boxes to send to kids all over the world. We have boxes we’ll be handing out; all you have to do is fill them. The date they must be back to the church is November 18. Please consider participating this year in a program that presents the light of Christ to many children and communities across the globe.
