International:

Operation Christmas Child

Andrea J. Stowell, Coordinator

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritans Purse, headed by Franklin Graham. Each year, they collect thousands of shoe boxes packed by churches and other interested groups and deliver them to children all over the world. These gifts bring everything from toothbrushes to toys, but especially The Word of God to thousands of children who are in need and know little about a loving Jesus.

Wycliffe

Pam Walker, Coordinator

No generation prior to this one has been better acquainted with the idea of global community. Thanks to the Internet and cell phones, we can communicate instantly with our neighbors worldwide. We also have to respond to the reality of God's plan "from every tribe, language, people and nation" . Wycliffe believes that as God's plan stated....every person on earth deserves to have access to God's word. With His help, we can garner the gifts of His Church for a ministry world wide through the translation of the Bible into the "heart language" of every nation. Hammock Community Church donates time and dollars to the fruition of His Plan.
