Operation Christmas Child

Dropoff Deadline: November 19

At Edgewood, we’re sharing authentic love and being disciples who make disciples by spreading good news and great joy in partnership with Operation Christmas Child. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is two-fold: To provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world through shoeboxes filled with Christmas gifts (toys, school supplies, and essential toiletries) and to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ at festive outreach events where children are surprised with these shoebox gifts.

Each box will go to a child who has never before received such a gift, and has likely never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The project delivers not only joy, but also gives a tangible expression of God’s love. Jesus authentically loved all people and we will too.

Empty boxes are available at the Operation Christmas Child table in the church lobby. Get those boxes and start packing!
