OCC Ministry

The Power of a Simple Gift!
Our church family is happy and blessed to participate in the Operation Christmas Child Program (OCC) sponsored by Samaritan's Purse International Relief. Because of everyone who packs shoebox gifts, the recent numbers show that since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have been blessed with a simple gift and the Good News of Jesus Christ. God uses Operation Christmas Child to touch the lives of children living in dire conditions and we are delighted to be able to be a part of this wonderful ministry.
Our church collects items from January through November to fill shoeboxes with toys, personal hygiene items and other small gifts that bring happiness to boys and girls worldwide. We also take special offerings each quarter to help OCC cover the shipping cost of the boxes we pack (a suggested donation of $9.00 each box).  Since we started packing our shoeboxes, we have meet and/or exceded a goal of 300 boxes!
We welcome you to join us and help to impact the lives of children. The shoe boxes don't just offer physical items to make life better for children. Most importantly, the gifts present an opportunity to teach the Gospel to many who otherwise may never hear.
