2018 was Operation Christmas Child’s 25th Year and Good Shepherd’s 8th Year!
Each November, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church serves as a drop off center for the annual Operation Christmas Child shoebox collection. Individuals and groups from the surrounding area bring their shoeboxes here to be packaged and then taken to a church in Troy where they are shipped to one of several processing centers.
God has blessed our drop off center over the years; 2015 we collected 2471 boxes and in 2017 we collected 3091 boxes. Thank you to everyone both at Good Shepherd and in the community for your contribution for this wonderful ministry.
We are so blessed in the USA and to give “A Simple Gift” to a hurting child is “Good News and Great Joy” to the Lord!
