Life in Christ for Every Alaskan and the World Beyond

Matthew 28:19

ChangePoint partners with dozens of missionaries and organizations in Anchorage,
across Alaska and around the world. 

Operation Christmas Child

ChangePoint is partnering with Samaritans Purse and Operation Christmas Child to send gift boxes to needy children in foreign countries this Christmas. Now through Nov. 22 you can pick up a shoebox in the ChangePoint Commons or at our front desk during the week. Fill the box with school supplies, toys, and items a child will love and drop it off by Nov 22 during any Sunday service time or during the week at the church office Mon. – Thur., 8am-5pm. The child that receives your box will attend a child friendly outreach event where pastors and trained leaders will share about the free gift of Jesus. The child will also receive a new testament in their language and have the opportunity to take part in “The Greatest Journey” follow-up discipleship program.  
 
Or, if you prefer, for $25 you can build can  build and send a shoebox online!
