Operation Christmas Child 2017

OCC National Collection Week

Join us in Operation Christmas Child as we pack shoeboxes and pray for children around the world.

We have official Samaritan’s Purse Shoeboxes available for everyone to use. They are free; pick up your box(es) up at the OCC table in the Foyer and make sure to drop them off by Sunday, November 12.

When you drop off your boxes please include $7 for shipping and remember to PRAY for the recipient of your shoebox.

If you have a family at home: 

  • Watch the following video with your child(ren) about OCC.

  • Pack a shoebox with each of your children. For ideas on what to pack, click here.
  • Have your children draw a picture or write a note to the child that will receive the shoebox.
  • Pick up a shipping label (indicate age and gender) in the foyer and leave $7 for shipping or print one here.
  • Pray with your child for the recipient of the shoebox.

If you do not have children at home, consider: 

  • Shopping, packing and praying with a grandchild, niece or nephew, or even a child from church that you know.
  • Offer to share the expenses for the shoebox items with a family at church.
  • Offer to pay the postage for the shoeboxes of a family at church.

Additional videos include:
