Operation Christmas Child

This year, our Growing in Christ Sunday School class plans to surpass the number of Operation Christmas Child Boxes that were packed last year! We look forward to many shoeboxes being filled with the help of our congregation.

Each month, we’ll focus on a specific category of gifts which will help us collect throughout the entire year, and keep our focus on the children that will benefit from these boxes.

  2. Find the current month.
  3. Choose an item to donate.
