     Operation Christmas Child is a blessed ministry that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes and the Good News of God's love.  These gift boxes are like a pebble in the pond, with ripples reaching out to their friends, their family and their community, demonstrating how powerful the Gospel and the love of God can be in the hands of a child.

      Since 1992, more than 124 million  boxes have been packed, guided by prayer, shipped and delivered worldwide to 150 nations across the globe, including right here in the United States, and it does not stop at Christmas time.  These eagerly anticipated gifts are delivered all year long into many remote villages and islands.  Many hearts are touched and lives are changed.

     Each October, Hilltop Chapel holds a KICKOFF AND COUNTDOWN EVENT for the Operation Christmas Child box collections campaign.  Videos, boxes, brochures, tags, and much more information is available.   Learn how you can change the life of a child, that child's family, and their community.
