Operation Christmas Child 2020

This year North Hills has TWO ways of blessing children around the world!


Now more than ever, children need great joy! You can give boys and girls in need a tangible expression of God’s love through a gift-filled shoebox packed from your computer or handheld device. In just a few clicks, you can select toys and other fun items to include as well as a letter and photo to delight the heart of a child. After Samaritan's Purse packs and ships shoeboxes like yours overseas, local believers share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children as they distribute them. As a result, families are reached, new churches are started, and communities are transformed! The cost to build a box online is $25.00. Click HERE to start today!


If you prefer to pack your own box, simply follow these steps:

STEP ONE: Come pick up a box from North Hills. You can get one at our outdoor Worship Service on Sunday (10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8, 11/15) or come to the church office between 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m Monday through Friday.

STEP TWO: Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.

STEP THREE: Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.

STEP FOUR: Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.

STEP FIVE: Bring your box back to North Hills by Sunday, November 22. Every shoebox needs a $9.00 donation to provide for collecting, processing, shipping, and other project costs. You have two options: 1) you can bring $9.00 along with your box, or 2) you can make the donation online. When you do this, you will be able to print out a special label (please attach the label to your box before bringing to North Hills) and then you can follow your box. After November 22, use the Samaritan's Purse Look-up Tool to find out the country where your box will be delivered with the message of Christ’s love!
