Operation Christmas Child

Box Pick-Up: October 30 - November 12
Box Drop-Off: November 13-20

Grace Kids is once again partnering with Samaritan's Purse for Operation Christmas Child — an initiative to deliver great joy and the Good News of Jesus Christ to children in need around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes. For many of these children, it’s their first gift ever! To participate, pick up an empty shoebox at Doors 1-4 during church hours at Eden Prairie (Door 4 during non-church hours) or the Commons at Chaska between October 30 and November 12, and fill it with toys, school supplies, personal care items, and a personal note and photo.

Once your box is packed, return it to the tables by Doors 1-4 at Eden Prairie or Chaska Commons between November 13-20. Most importantly, "pray without ceasing" (1 Thess. 5:17) for the child who will receive your shoebox gift, and that the gift becomes a tangible expression of God's immense love for the child.
