Christmas is a special time for giving to those in need. Below you will find ways that we can support our community and beyond with the love of Jesus Christ this Advent.
Operation Christmas Child, an outreach of Samaritan’s Purse Canada.
Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on way for Canadians to bless struggling children in the developing world by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and other items. Samaritan’s Purse Canada collects the boxes, and distributes them in the name of Jesus Christ to children living in desperate situations.
Even though we are in the midst of a Covid-19 pandemic, Knox Presbyterian Church is once again sponsoring this very worthwhile program. In past years our congregation had supplied hundreds of shoe boxes with gifts for children in third world countries.
These boxes not only contain gifts for the children, most of whom have never received a gift, but, more importantly, the children are told about the love of Jesus as Savior, and through further teaching, share the story with family and friends.
The children learn that people all over the world love them enough to provide these wonderful gifts, and to change their lives forever.
For those of you who would like to take part in this outreach program, but are not able to pick up a shoebox from our church, there is an easy way to provide a shoebox online.

May God bless you as you help to spread the love of Jesus to the children of the world.
