Operation Christmas Child
For about six years our church has participated in a ministry called Operation Christmas Child (OCC) which is a part of Samaritan’s Purse. Please join us as we participate again this year in sharing the gospel through OCC with the goal of packing 180 shoe boxes. OCC is a ministry where people pack shoe boxes full of gifts to be sent to children ages 2–14 in over 114 countries and territories around the world. The children hear the gospel message before they receive their shoe box, along with a gospel booklet called The Greatest Journey in their own language. Many children have become Christians through OCC and have shared the gospel with their families and communities to bring more people to Christ. After receiving the shoe box children get a chance to participate in a program similar to children’s church called The Greatest Journey which allows the children to hear more about Jesus and connect with local churches. Please visit Operation Christmas Child for more information about this incredible ministry!
