Operation Christmas Child
Individuals, families, small groups, and Sunday School classes are encouraged to participate in Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, that distributes shoeboxes filled with small gifts for needy children around the world. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world and, together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
If you’ve never packed a box, step-by-step instructions can be found here. You will also find a suggestions of acceptable/unacceptable items for your box on the Operation Christmas Child site. Bring your filled shoebox to the sanctuary or The Gathering in the CAC on Sunday, November 17, for the church to pray over and send to a central collection location.
Mt. Bethel has enjoyed the privilege of participating in this ministry outreach for many years. Your contribution helps to make a visible and tangible difference to a child in need.
