The Preschool Christmas project will be Operation Christmas Child this year. Operation Christmas Child is a yearly project done by Samaritan’s Purse. Shoeboxes are filled with fun and needed items. The boxes are collected, gone through and made ready to bless needy children all around the world. A gospel book in the child’s native language will be included at the shipping location. We not only are blessing a needy child with something fun or useful but sharing the hope of Jesus too! For more information you can go to www.samaritanspurse.org
