River will be packing shoeboxes for Samaritan’s Purse.
Why are we participating in Operation Christmas Child?
- Operation Christmas Child provides an opportunity for a local worker on the ground to share the gospel with children and families. Each shoebox contains a Gospel presentation and follow up materials. The shoeboxes are presented by people who are already ministering in the countries where the boxes are delivered.
- Participating in Operation Christmas Child gives us an opportunity to teach our kids the importance of making the good news of Jesus known to others. The gospel is the one thing that changes everything more than anything.
- Participating in the Operation Christmas Child gives us an opportunity to help our kids see that they can be a part of making God’s love known to others. Whether those “others” are people overseas or neighbors and friends, God can use us to make his love known.
