Operation Christmas Child

The time has come where we can make a difference in a child’s life and introduce him or her to Jesus Christ.  This is done through Operation Christmas Child Shoe box program.  We will hand out shoe boxes after church for you to fill and return. Shoe boxes must be back by Nov 21st.


We realize that sometimes it’s hard to get out and then decide what to put in the box, well this year we have made it really easy for you. You can fill and send a shoe box from the comfort of your home.  We've created a church Shoe box webpage where you fill your box, pay for it and the church will receive credit for it.  The total cost is just $25.00 which includes the $9.00 shipping.  Just click this link to get started:
