Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God’s love. This program of Samaritan’s Purse provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on missions project while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas—Jesus Christ, God’s greatest gift. Along with shoe box gifts, millions of children are given Gospel booklets in their own language. In 2004, over 7.4 million shoe boxes were collected worldwide and distributed them to children in about 95 countries.
KFBC takes a very active part in Operation Christmas Child and acts as a central drop-off location for shoeboxes from other churches in our area.
