Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child

Our Redeemer Lutheran Church is a participating Drop-Off center for 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 the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Why not make a box with your family this season?

Decide if you want to provide for a boy or ...a girl, then choose an age range. Purchase appropriate gifts and put them into a standard-sized shoe box. Please do not wrap the box! Please include $7 to help defray the cost of shipping the boxes.

Drop your shoe box off at OUR REDEEMER LUTHERAN CHURCH in AQUEBOGUE the third week in November.  

We understand that many area churches are participating in this mission. If you would like to help, ORLC looking for volunteers. Once the shoe boxes begin to arrive, they need to be bundled into larger boxes. Those boxes need to be taken to another center up the Island. Anyone with a large SUV or pick-up truck would be greatly appreciated!! Contact me and I'll put you in touch with the appropriate person.

Remember, many hands lighten the load. We're called to spread the gospel throughout the world. Help a child in need know God's love for us by sharing it with them. Matthew 22:36-39 "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it. Love your neighbor as yourself."


Audrey Schuller has been hard at work making these adorable wash cloth animals to be placed into our Operation Christmas Child Shoe Boxes this year.  These little guys need a bar of soap, tooth brush, tooth paste, comb, hair clip, brush and small toys to go with them!  Keep Operation Christmas Child in the forefront of your mind all year long as needed items go on sale!  What a fun way to bless a child on the other side of the world!  Thank you!
Just a few of the MANY volunteers who came last year with shoe boxes filled with toys for Operation Christmas Child.  Thank you to all who donated, helped pack and load the trucks for delivery.  God Bless You!
