Operation Christmas Child
October 22 - November 15
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is back at Grace! OCC is an opportunity to share Christ’s love through the packing and delivering of shoeboxes filled with goodies to boys and girls all over the world. Every gift-filled shoebox is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship – transforming the lives of children and their families.
HOW TO PACK YOUR SHOEBOX for a trip around the world:
- Pick up a shoebox from the church lobby to pack for a girl or boy.
- Select a quality “WOW” toy such as a doll, soccer ball with pump, or stuffed animal
- Fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies
- Most importantly, PRAY for the child who will receive your gift. Include a personal note and photo if you like.
- Donate $9.00 to send your gift overseas. Discover the destination of your shoebox through Follow Your Box online.
- Bring back your shoebox to the church office by NOVEMBER 15th! We will deliver your shoebox to the OCC collection site.
- New for 2017 – No toothpaste or candy in the boxes, for shipping purposes.
