After sharing the story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37), Jesus said “Go and do likewise.” That is the mission of Samaritan's Purse—to follow the example of Christ by helping those in need and proclaiming the hope of the Gospel. 

Smithfield Baptist designates certain items to be collected each month. In November, a team packs all the items in a shoebox as gifts that are sent to Samaritan Purse, who in turn, ships them to children around the world as Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts.  These gifts lead to evangelism, discipleship, and the multiplication of believers and churches.

Operation Christmas Child collection item for the month of May is BOY TOYS:

We will be placing a bulk order of soccer balls for our older boys boxes. You can sponsor a soccer ball, pump, and needle for a shoe box for $5.00. If you would like to sponsor a soccer ball, you can do so by sending a monetary gift to:

  • Smithfield Baptist Church
  • c/o Operation Christmas Child
  • 100 Wainwright Drive
  • Smithfield, Virginia 23430

Please note OCC on your donation.


Thank you church for continuing to support this wonderful mission and for sharing God's love to children in need all over the world.
