What is Operation Christmas Child?
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoe boxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. These simple gifts, packed with love, deliver hope and joy to children around the world, regardless of their faith or religious background.
How can I participate?
Next time you are at the church, pick up a shoebox and instruction brochure at the Welcome Desk or church office. Follow the instructions in the brochure for preparing your shoebox.
Is there an online option?
Yes! This year we have an easy online option for building a OCC shoebox. All boxes made here will be donated through Parkview!
Is there a deadline to submit boxes?
There are a few important dates to remember.
Sunday October 11: Boxes will be available at the Welcome Desk
Sunday, November 15: Dedication Sunday
Monday, November 23: Deadline to submit shoeboxes.
