Operation Christmas Child 2019
Our Operation Christmas Child campaign will begin on Sunday, October 13. The boxes that participants will fill with toys and fun gifts will be collected and sent by Samaritan’s Purse to children in need around the world. These children will also have an opportunity to participate in a 12-lesson follow up discipleship program where they can learn to follow Christ and share Him with others.
How do we get information?
Brochures and OCC boxes will be available on October 13. Please follow the directions on the brochure while purchasing gifts or go online at SAMARITANSPURSE.ORG/OCC. In particular there are to be no food or snacks of any kind, no gum, candy, or toothpaste. There will also be an informational insert in the church bulletin on October 13 with more details
When are they due?
We are asking that the filled boxes be returned to the church by Sunday, November 10. Thank-you for your participation in the past. It is always a blessing to watch our children carry the boxes to the front of the church on collection Sunday for prayer for the children who will receive your generous gifts.
