Marion Church of Christ is supporting Samaritan's Purse and Operation Christmas Child again this October.

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organisation. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. After receiving shoebox gifts, many children are also invited back to participate in The Greatest Journey – an evangelism and discipleship program. We ship these simple gifts from Australia and New Zealand to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease. These gifts are given without condition and without regard to the race, creed, gender, religion, or ethnicity of the beneficiaries.

We are a
