Operation Christmas Child, brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God's love. This program of Samaritan's Purse provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on missions project while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas; Jesus Christ.

Mariners Church participates in this venture each year and it is a great service project for your family, LifeGroup or just yourself! 
It's a major project for our Surf's Up KidMin!
The 2015 Collection Week is November 15-23.  We will be hosting a Packing Party on Wednesday, November 18, 6pm.
Please be mindful of your contents - follow the guide of what to and what not to include.  
     A picture and note are especially encouraged!
All boxes need to be brought to the church by Sunday, November 22!
