Reaching Children with the Gospel

Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse that sends shoebox Christmas gifts to children all over the world. 

Every gift filled shoe box is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship, transforming the lives of children and their families around the world through the Good News of Jesus Christ!


Operation Christmas Child is such a special and powerful ministry. We get to play a small part in that here at Halethorpe. Every year in October, we have a giant packing party where we fill over 1,500 shoe boxes to bless children of all ages, all over the world!

We are always collecting the following items for Operation Christmas Child: small toys such as matchbox cars, bouncy balls, bracelets, small games, and happy meal toys along with shoe boxes and school supplies.
