Operation
Christmas Child

Fellowship Church is partnering with Samaritan’s Purse this year for Operation Christmas Child. With your help, children (ages 2-14) around the world will experience the joy of receiving a gift on Christmas. The shoe box gift that you make will be sent to a child who most likely does not know Christ and may have never before received a Christmas gift. And, as children receive their gift, they hear about the ultimate gift, Jesus. Join us as we share the good news of Jesus around the world, one child at a time.

There are two easy ways for you to change the life of a child! Build your own shoebox and return it to a Fellowship Church campus or build
