Operation Christmas Child

Collection Week

We are excited to be a drop-off location again for Operation Christmas Child. The National Collection Week is November 14–21. This is an opportunity bless children in need around the world and share the gospel.

There are 3 ways you can get involved:

Pack a Shoebox:

a. In Person: Pack gift-filled shoeboxes as a family or during a packing party and if able, donate $10 to ship the box or $15 to ship the box and provide a child the opportunity to attend a discipleship course. You can pick up a shoebox in the Mallway on a Sunday morning leading up to the national collection week.

b. Online (a new option this year!): You can pack a box online by going here.


Sign up to volunteer to hand out and collect shoeboxes from the community at Bethel World Outreach Church. As noted, Bethel is an area drop off point for the entire community so any help is appreciated! Sign up to help here.


Pray, that those filling shoeboxes are blessed, that families come together in love, that children around the world receive God’s love, hope, the gospel, and the joy of a simple shoebox gift.
