Faith Lutheran Church, Murphys CA
Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse. Each November, we pack simple gifts into shoe boxes and pray for each box to bring the message God's love to hurting children around the world. These shoe boxes are collected and shipped to destinations overseas where people are living in refugee camps, natural disasters, extreme poverty, orphanages. In Jesus' words, "Whoever welcomes one such child in my name, welcomes me." (Matthew 18:5)
Each year, Faith Lutheran hosts one of the produce distribution days, helping load the carts of produce for many dozens of recipients.
