Operation Christmas Child

The world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child, uses gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 135 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 150 countries and territories. The Morehead First Church of God has worked with this ministry for several years. In 2016 we exceeded our goal of 10,000 shoeboxes for our region by collecting 11,563 shoeboxes. Our congregation alone made and collected 746 shoeboxes. We are proud to be a part of such a great ministry.

Mark 16:15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.”
