operation christmas child

A project of Samaritan's Purse


The Xenia Nazarene congregation will again donate gift-filled shoe boxes that will be shipped worldwide throughout the year to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease.  These boxes are used to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to entire communities.  Children receiving the shoe boxes are invited to enroll in The Greatest Journey, a 12-lesson discipleship program.


Empty boxes and info will be available for pick up November 3-23 in the Xenia Naz foyer.  Fill your box with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.  For more info about what to include in your boxes, visit Samaritan's Purse.  


Filled boxes are to be returned to Xenia Nazarene Church by Sunday, November 24.
