Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local agencies around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S. You can participate by picking up a box here at New Hope, fill it up and return it to our church between November 18th-25th. Directions, boxes and all the details are available in the foyer. Besides our regular office hours which are from 10am-2pm Tuesday through Friday, you are welcome to drop off boxes during the following extended hours as well:

  • Monday, November 18th – 10am to 1pm
  • Tuesday, November 19th – 12pm to 4pm
