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


I want to take this opportunity to say “Thank You” to all who have helped and/or contributed to our OCC Item collections over the past number of months.  With September already upon us, National Shoebox Collection Week will sneak-up before we know it .

Our OCC display table is up in the Social Hall, along with a pile of empty shoe boxes for you to take home and fill over the next two months. On the table, you will find a display of shoebox samples, along with a list of ideas of items to include in your box, along with a list of items NOT to include. There are also labels and directions.

As always, we will also gladly accept monetary donations in lieu of packing your own shoebox gift.   Please include Grace OCC Shoebox Ministry in the memo line, and place your gift in the offering plate, or simply mail it to the church office.

May you be reminded of how this simple ministry brings the Gospel of Jesus Christ to millions of children throughout the world. Know that the donation tub will remain in the church entryway if you would like to contribute additional items. Finally, if you would like to help with the packing of shoe box gifts, please call Cathy Atchison, or look for packing opportunities in the coming months in both the newsletter and the weekly bulletins.  Happy Fall !
