Operation Christmas Child

We’ll be shopping and filling shoeboxes again to touch children’s lives with the message of God’s love and prayers from the Good Shepherd families.
The display with the instructions, gift ideas and boxes will be in the Narthex in November.
Here is an update on the Shoeboxes that were delivered to the Democratic Re-public of Congo:
The impact goes far beyond the material items in the box. The children also receive The Greatest Journey booklets, which tell the story of the Gospel in their own language. As they waited to open their boxes, they flipped through the booklets. After the distribution, churches often invite the children to attend The Greatest Journey discipleship program. Through this program, many children come to Christ—and they often invite their friends. At the end of the program, there’s a graduation ceremony to celebrate.
Despite the brokenness and instability, Operation Christmas Child provides the children in the area with something that is constant—the gift of having a friend in Jesus.
