What is Operation Christmas Child?


The Mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to needy children around the world and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

How is Calvary Salt Lake Involved? 


Calvary Salt Lake hosts the Greater Salt Lake Area Team, supporting the multi-church volunteer based team in hosting events and financially supporting the ministry of Samaritan's Purse.  Calvary Salt Lake has been the Greater Salt Lake Area Central Drop Off Site since 1994.  Calvary Salt Lake recognizes Operation Christmas Child and Samaritan's Purse as their International Missions outreach and is blessed to be a part of this amazing project that reaches millions of children each year with the love of Christ and the Gospel.
