Gift-filled shoeboxes are a powerful way to introduce children to God’s greatest gift, salvation through Jesus Christ. Your prayers are essential to the work of Operation Christ-mas Child. Our goal this year is to collect 9.8 million shoebox gifts from the United States and nine other countries.

Boxes for Operation Christmas Child will be available for pick-up. The boxes will be located in the Gathering Room near the tri-fold display. Each box includes a pamphlet outlining items that can be packed in the boxes along with packing instructions.

Boxes MUST BE RETURNED no later than SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 12th. Filled boxes can be placed by the tri-fold display in the Gathering Room.

By packing just one box you can change the life of a child in a less fortunate country!

Please donate $7 or more for each shoebox you prepare to help cover ship-ping and other project costs. You can give online by using our “Follow Your Box Donation” option, or you can write a check to Samaritan’s Purse (note “OCC” on memo line) and place it in an envelope on top of the gift items in-side your box. If you or your family are preparing more than one shoebox, please make one combined donation.

Please read directions included in the box carefully!
