We did it!
We ALL did it! Thank you St. James for contributing 199 Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes packed with gifts and cards for children around the world. You continue to be a blessing by sharing the love and joy of life with Jesus this Christmas Season!



Help bring joy to the children of the world and experience the elation of working on this project.

What can make the shoebox so powerful?  The prayer that accompanies each box.  Pray as you shop, pray as you make selections, pray as you pack – pray for the child, and believe that God will direct each shoebox to a particular child.
“Lord, you know what a child’s need is and which child will receive this box. Direct me in making choices that will bless this little one in ways I cannot imagine, because most of all this gift is a means to demonstrate your love.”
