Operation Christmas Child provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on project of Samaritan’s Purse that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas – Jesus Christ – God’s greatest gift.
Each shoebox is filled by generous, caring Canadians with hygiene items, school supplies, and toys, and is given to children regardless of gender, race, or religion. When culturally appropriate, copies of a book entitled The Greatest Gift, which has been translated into 130 different languages, are offered to children after the shoeboxes have already been distributed.
Christ Church invites you to pick up a box from our Narthex and fill it with toys, hygiene items, books, school supplies, clothing, etc. and return it to us by Wednesday, November 16th. For more information, please contact our church office at 905-640-1461.
