operation christmas child

Each year during the month of October you begin to see red and green shoeboxes filing our sanctuary and family life center. These boxes are selected by our church members and then filled to the top with toys and treats for children all over the world. 

If you've never heard of this ministry, I encourage you to visit https://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk/who-we-are/our-history/history-of-operation-christmas-child/ and discover how it all began in 1990 with a father of four and developed into a ministry that supplies over 1 million children around the world with the message of Christ.

Our church also serves as a collection site for our area.


The National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child is November 18th - 25th.

Dorcas Wills Memorial Baptist Church is a designated Drop-off location. 

Boxes may be dropped off at the entry door to the big blue building located on Hwy. 19.
