Operation Christmas Child has distributed more than 100 million shoebox gifts worldwide!
2016 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 14 and ends November 21, 2016.
The church's Pack-A-Box Party will be held on Saturday, November 19 at 9:00 am with the dedication of these boxes Sunday, November 20.
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.
“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 1,169 shoe boxes! Our Collection Center for this area of North Carolina received, processed and loaded 18,342 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!
