Operation Christmas Child

Before most people even begin to think about Christmas, members of first Baptist Church are gathering candy, small toys, school supplies, etc. to be placed in shoeboxes. The filled boxes are then sent to Samaritan's Purse to be distributed to children in need worldwide. 

Each year our church prepares more than 1,000 shoeboxes for children who might otherwise have no Christmas gifts. But more importantly, along with the shoeboxes, the children are given the chance to learn of God's love for them.
