Operation Christmas Child

Sends Toys, Gifts, and The Good News of Jesus to children all over the world!

Since 1993, through “Operation Christmas Child” , more than 200 Million Shoebox Gifts have been distributed to countries around the globe bringing hope, joy, and the love of Jesus to children and their families. Shoebox gifts have made their way to over 170 countries and territories, including 1000 Pacific Islands, and 50+ hard to reach areas, sharing the Gospel in over 80 languages!


Join us this year as we partner with “Operation Christmas Child” to bring the story of Jesus and His love to even more children around the world!

On Sundays, October 29, November 5, or November 12, at Prince of  Peace Lutheran Church – Pick up an empty Shoebox (a label for a boy or girl and packing info is inside), fill it with toys and gifts, then return it to Prince of Peace on Sunday November 19. Make a shipping donation online or bring your $10 donation with your filled shoebox (to cover global shipping costs – make checks out to “Prince of Peace Lutheran Church”) to be added to the gathering of boxes we will take to a local “Operation Christmas Child” collection center and shipped to children around the world this Christmas!
