Operation Christmas Child

River Community Church is excited to partner with Samaritans Purse and Operation Christmas Child to bring Good News of Great Joy through the simple gift of a shoebox, which results in Evangelism, Discipleship and Multiplication in communities across the world.

In 2018, River Community Church received 45 shoeboxes at our first collection,
which was delivered for international distribution. A big thanks to all who contributed!
