New Picture

Operation Christmas Child Shoebox ministry brings the Gospel of Jesus Christ to millions of children throughout the world.


           OCC Shoebox time is fast approaching !

Operation Christmas Child  pre-packed shoeboxes  are ready for your special touch! For just $10, you can pick up a pre-packed shoebox, and add your personal touch with a special “WOW”  item to make a child’s day. Our hope is that this will make it easier for you to reach out and touch 1 or more children during this upcoming outreach Season. Please see the display in the Family Life Center following worship.

Basic Pre-packed Box: It is not uncommon to spend $25 – $35 or more on a shoebox. We are proposing to sell ‘Basic Boxes’ at a cost of $7 to $10. The basic box would contain most of the common items found in a shoebox – (toothbrush, school kit, T-shirt, hygiene items, a small toy or game, etc.) . You can take the basic box and add (1) or (2) ‘WOW’ items to personalize the box. Our hope is that by saving you money, you will be willing to do (2) boxes rather than (1), or to buy nicer ‘WOW’ items. Basic box items will be on display soon.

Build Your Own Box: If you wish to build your entire box yourself, you are also welcome to do that. As
Always, empty shoeboxes will be available for your use.

Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes are one of the most cost-efficient mission outreach projects, reaching millions of children and their families. To learn more, talk with Diane Tobias, Cathy Atchison, Linda Leshko, or John Orr.
