Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on project that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes packed by Canadians. It is one way to remind children suffering as a result of war, poverty, famine, disease, and disaster that they are loved and not forgotten.
We also equip local churches and ministry partners to teach our 12-lesson Bible study and evangelism course, The Greatest Journey. Through this teaching ministry, more than 1.8 million children a year are committing their lives to Christ.
Make sure to grab one, two, or ten, shoeboxes Sunday morning at Emmanuel. All the instructions are there in how to pack them. Let’s make a different in many children’s lives around the world! Shoeboxes are due back on November 11th.
