Candlewood Church to be an Operation Christmas Child Collection Site

It is with great excitement to announce that this year, Candlewood Church is increasing our participation in partnering with Samaritan’s Purse for the Operation Christmas Child ministry. Not only will Candlewood Church be asking our church members to pack shoebox gifts, we will also be a central, Operation Christmas Child collection site in Omaha, NE. 


People from across the Omaha metro area as well as other churches can bring their Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts to Candlewood Church. Being an Operation Christmas Child collection site is a great opportunity for us to serve our community and to serve with Samaritan’s Purse as we seek to reach the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
