Operation Christmas Child

November 13 @ 10:00 am - November 20 @ 11:00 am

Everyday, boys and girls suffer from war, poverty, disease and natural disaster.  Operation Christmas Child makes it possible for millions of these children to experience God’s love through shoeboxes filled with gifts.  Theses shoeboxes open doors for presenting the Good News of Jesus Christ by working in and through local churches where possible, offering children’s literature and culturally-appropriate evangelistic and follow-up programs.  One of the things that makes Operation Christmas Child so special is its emphasis on kids helping kids.  This project provides a simple, tangible way for children and teenagers to join adults in sharing the joy of giving to children around the world.
Individuals, families, churches and groups fill empty shoeboxes with “wow” items – like a doll or soccer ball and other fun toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement.  Participants are asked to include $7 for shipping costs.
During National Collection Week (Nov. 13-20, 2017), Samaritan’s Purse will collect the gift-filled shoeboxes at more than 4,000 drop off sites in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.  Once again, Trinity Assembly of God has been chosen to be a Relay Center for Operation Christmas Child.  Of the 8,765,637 Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes received in the United States, last year, 320 were dropped off here at Trinity.  From Trinity, the boxes are taken to a Collection Center in Southern Rhode Island.  From there, they will be shipped to Baltimore.  After being processed in Baltimore, they are sent to 137 countries all over the world

Trinity’s Relay Center will be open during the week of November 13-20, 2017.
