Operation Christmas Child

The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.”

For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done the utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering.  Operation Christmas Child along with Samaritan’s Purse, impacts the lives of vulnerable children through educational, feeding, clothing, and shelter programs that let them know they are not forgotten. This is your time to be involved in the mission of changing lives.

Packing a shoe box for Operation Christmas Child is easy; you can use an empty shoe box or pick up an Operation Christmas Child box from the Bethel Foyer, once packed all we ask is that you enclose $7.00 for shipping and bring the unwrapped box to Bethel before November 13, 2011. Give a gift that not only can bring joy to a child’s life, but a gift that can share the gospel with them too. Boxes are now available in the foyer. A list of appropiate gift suggestions can also be retrived from the Bethel Foyer.
