good news great joy

Every year, Operation Christmas Child delivers millions of shoebox gifts to children around the world. Shining the light of the the Gospel of Jesus Christ to children affected by war, poverty, disease and natural disaster, shoebox gifts are fueled by the power of prayer, bringing Good News and Great Joy to the ends of the earth!



"WHAT IS SMALL TO US, MAY BE THE WORLD TO THEM."

< Deborah L. >

Act fast because this year's North Glencoe Shoebox dedication has been extended to Wednesday, November 14! All boxes that wish to be part of the dedication will need to be turned in at the Gathering Area that morning! If you miss that date, don't worry! The final deadline for all NGBC donations is Wednesday, November 18 at the designated location in the Gathering Area. Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse and we're excited to be a mission partner!
