Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is the world’s largest Christmas project that operates year-round to bring the joy of Christmas and hope to over 110 countries. Each year, beginning in October, we will be collecting shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items that are blessed by the love and prayers from our congregation and neighboring churches. Please consider filling a shoebox and bringing it back to the church to start its journey across the globe to reach those who may never experience the Good News of God’s love.

Thank you to all who participated in Operation Christmas Child during 2021! Just as always, we kicked off the shoebox mission in the middle of October, handing out brochures and boxes to those who wanted to be a part of this worldwide ministry. Without knowing what to expect, we just let God and you come through. Overall we collected 1,875 boxes containing toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and most of all, love, to be handed to kids in need in over 110 different countries around the world. That's 1,117 MORE boxes than 2020!!!

We will be collecting donations throughout the year so keep OCC in mind when shopping for good deals. Also, please be on the lookout for more info regarding a new OCC Christmas in July.

Thank you for support this ministry to spread the Good News across the world.
