Operation Christmas Child


Begin praying for the success of this ministry this year. Pray for the children that will receive these boxes and those who will deliver the plan of salvation to these children. Pray that God will guide and lead you as you begin packing your shoeboxes.  

 This is a great time of year to purchase school supply items for your shoebox and end of the season items such as tank tops and flip flops to go into the boxes.   

·  School supplies: pens, pencils and sharpener, erasers, crayons or markers, colored pencils, stamps and ink pad sets, coloring books, writing pads or paper, solar calculators, 1 subject notebooks, child scissors, small book bags, etc. 

 Do NOT include the following items:

  • Used items
  • Candy
  • Toothpaste
  • War-related items(toy guns, toy soldiers, knives, etc.)
  • Perishable items(chocolate, canned foods, crackers, etc.)
  • Liquids(shampoo, lotion, bubbles, etc.)
  • Medicines(vitamins, cough drops, ointment, etc.)
  • Breakable items(mirrors, china dolls, etc.)

You may enclose a note to the child and a photo of yourself or your family.(If you include your name and address, the child who receives your box may write you back.)
