Christchurch christmas missions opportunities

The Christmas season brings with it special outreach opportunities. 

Below are the projects that CCP is excited to support this year:

Samaritan's purse: operation christmas child

It is time again to start packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child! Samaritan’s Purse’s annual Christmas outreach project, Operation Christmas Child, uses gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world.  

You can pick up a shoebox to pack in the Narthex at CCP or use a shoebox you have at home.

sharing is caring

Sharing is Caring is a collaboration of various community agencies who work throughout the year to create a collaborative community Christmas program.  

Their goals are to:

  • Provide a similar Christmas for families that we desire for our own families
  • Address the complete needs of families and provide resources to help them be able to create their own Christmases in the future
  • Protect the families’ dignity by allowing them to choose and give the gifts to their children as well as celebrate Christmas in their own ways
  • Create an equality throughout the community of gifts that families will receive; Work together as a whole community to build parent capacity and empower families.


  • MONETARY DONATIONS: You can give online here or you can write a check to ChristChurch Presbyterian with "Sharing is Caring" in the memo line. All monetary donations will be used to supply the Christmas store with needed toys and clothing items.
