In 2011 Rejoice joined hundreds of churches, businesses and organizations across the world in becoming an official collection center for Operation Christmas Child. Every day boys and girls worldwide suffer from war, poverty, disease and natural disaster. Operation Christmas Child makes it possible for millions of these children to experience God’s love through shoe boxes filled with gifts. One quality that makes Operation Christmas Child so special is its emphasis on kids helping kids. It is a project that provides a simple, tangible way for children and teens to join adults in sharing the joy of giving to children around the world at Christmas! If you are interested in packing a shoe box this year, click here for instructions.
Rejoice is honored to open our doors to our neighborhood and community the 3rd week of November to accept these shoe boxes and prepare them for their journey overseas. Many hands are needed for important, yet short-term, volunteer opportunities! If you would like to help out or have any questions, please click here to contact our collection center coordinator.
