Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child has distributed more than 100 million shoebox gifts worldwide!


2017 Operation Christmas Child

This year, as in years past, we will be participating in Operation Christmas Child. It is an outreach to children all over the world, who are less fortunate, to learn about the love of Christ.

Collection week begins November 13 and ends November 20, 2017

We hope you will be participating in Operation Christmas Child this year! What a wonderful way to reach out with a gift-filled shoe box and touch the life of a needy child, and often their family, somewhere in the world! While supply lasts, empty shoe boxes are available on a table in the Fellowship Hall. Collection week is November 13th through the 20th. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! There is a sign-up sheet at the church office window for those who can volunteer for two or three-hour shifts to help in the collecting and packing of shoe boxes during that week. Please return your gift-filled shoe boxes by Sunday, November 19th, so they can be dedicated during the 10:55 am worship service. You can also leave your gift-filled shoe boxes on the table nearest the stage in the Fellowship Hall. We are blessed to be a blessing to others! 


The church's Pack-A-Box Party will be held on Saturday, November 11 at 9:00 am.

Activities for the church are planned through the year in support of this program and will be announced in the church bulletin.

Contact the church office at 692-3211 for more information.

2016 Re-cap

“A GREAT BIG THANKS” to so many of you who contributed to our annual Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box effort. You shared the Lord's blessings in many ways -- prayers, bringing in items to fill shoe boxes, those who filled boxes with donated items, those who financed and/or filled their own shoe box and for the many hours of volunteer time leading up to and including Collection Week. Our church collected 1,330 shoe boxes! Our Collection Center, which this year included Henderson and Transylvania counties, collected, processed and loaded 9,381 shoe boxes! We are thankful for all of our dedicated OCC team volunteers, especially Dale and Linda Stephen’s leadership and dedication all year long to promote and encourage this wonderful outreach. To God be the Glory!

Please take a box and fill it up!
