Operation Christmas Child

"Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Matthew 19:14

Samaritan's Purse, under the leadership of Franklin Graham, began collecting shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items for children around the world in 1993.  Since then, over 188 million children in more than 170 countries have received a shoebox from Operation Christmas Child.  For many of these children, it is the only gift they have ever received!  Many of these children are led to Christ by this simple gift from  a person they don't even know.  At Bethel, our goal is to pack at least 200 boxes each year.
