What is Operation Christmas Child?
Yes it’s that time of year and once again Remnant Ministries and our volunteers will participate in supporting Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas Child is the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. Operation Christmas Child uses gift-filled shoeboxes as a visual and tangible representation of God’s grace and love for children in need throughout the world. Members of our church family are encouraged to select from the specific online items we have made available and select and purchase them to be packed in special shoeboxes as gifts of grace. Our goal, as always, is to fill as many shoeboxes as we can.
Once all shoeboxes have been prepared at all giving locations across the United States, Samaritan’s Purse and its partners will deliver the gifts to children in more than 100 countries on six continents. More than 500,000 volunteers worldwide, with over 100,000 of those in the United States, are involved in collecting, shipping and distributing shoebox gifts.
Operation Christmas Child is a unique and wonderful way to teach our young disciples what it means to be grateful, giving, and serve God by serving others!
