Operation Christmas Child 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 local churches worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. GBPC has been hosting this project each October – November and asking our church body to take home one of the wrapped shoe boxes provided, fill it up with special gifts, and return to the church with the $7.50 donation to help with shipping costs. Each year, GPBC collects approximately 350 boxes to send off to children around the world in need of Christmas cheer!
