Welcome to New Bethesda

Operation Christmas Child in full swing

Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God’s love. This program of Samaritan’s Purse provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on mission project while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas — Jesus Christ, God’s greatest gift. Along with shoe box gifts, millions of children are given Gospel booklets in their own  language.
2017 will be the 21st year that New Bethesda has participated in Operation Christmas Child. As a Collection Center, we receive boxes from Relay Centers and many area churches and individuals. In 2016, New Bethesda collected over 27,194 as a Collection Center, contributing 830 of those shoeboxes ourselves. This involves many, many volunteers from churches throughout our community.
