Operation Christmas Child at River

At River Community Church, we Go on Mission to Love the People God Loves. One way we do that is to partner with Operation Christmas Child. 

Throughout the year, we collect resources to fill shoeboxes and money to fund sending those shoeboxes  to children in need around the world. In October and November, we have packing parties, collect and pray for shoeboxes from around the valley, then send them to a distribution center where they are sorted for international delivery.

There are several ways to partner together with us in this mission:
1) Pray for each box to go to the right child
2) Give to fund shipping shoeboxes here>>
3) Purchase and bring these items to River on a Sunday between now and the end of September:
  • Bars of Soap (100+ Needed)
  • Boxes of Crayons (100+ Needed)
  • Small Notebooks (100+ Needed)
  • Jump Ropes
  • Yo-Yos & Marbles
  • Small Dolls (Multiple Ethnicities Please)
  • Toy Cars (Hot Wheels &Matchbox style)
  • Clothing Items & Socks for Boys & Girls, Ages Infant-14. 
4) Join us for a packing party in October. TBA
