Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. Through the program, we are able to fill spiritual and physical needs of vulnerable children by showing the practical love of Jesus Christ. Shoe-boxes are filled with needed items and toys, which are then shipped to developing countries where local volunteers deliver these special shoe boxes to children. Whenever possible, the good news of Jesus Christ is transmitted to the children in their own language and they can participate in The Greatest Journey (a discipleship learning program). Many children, and often their families, come to a saving knowledge of Jesus through Operation Christmas Child.
The International Community of Alliance Churches serves as a local collection centre for churches, work-places, community organizations and individual families participating in this program in our area. We bring all the collected shoe-boxes to the nearest regional collection centre.
