Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ.

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

After several years of being a participating church community for Operation Christmas Child, Immanuel was blessed in 2013 to be chosen as an area drop off location. We collected XXX shoe boxes from area churches, individuals and community groups.

Immanuel also exceeded our personal goal of 100 shoe boxes including a late night work group who donated toys, school supplies, shoe boxes, tape, rubber bands to complete the project.
