The Village is partnering with Samaritan’s Purse to send shoe boxes full of gifts to underprivileged children around the world. The empty boxes will be available before and after service on July 5th, 8th, 12th, and 15th in the Welcome Center at The Village. The filled shoeboxes will be due back to The Village by July 31st.

Check this out to learn more.:


Most important, pray for the child who will receive your gift. Include a personal note and a photo. Once your box is packed, bring it back to The Village with a $9 donation to cover the cost of shipping and other project costs. We’ll be following our church boxes to see where they go!

Watch This

After all the boxes are collected, volunteers will inspect and prepare them for shipping, so churches around the world can hand them out. Along with the gifts, the children are given booklets, called “The Greatest Gift”, to help them learn about God’s Greatest Gift to us, His Son, Jesus Christ. After receiving a shoebox, the children will have the opportunity to enroll in a 12-lesson follow-up discipleship program, The Greatest Journey. As a result of what they learn, these boys and girls grow in Christ and share Him with others. Families are reached, churches grow, new churches are started, and communities are transformed!
