Operation Christmas Child
October 14 - November 14
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is back at Grace! OCC is an opportunity to share Christ’s love through the packing and delivering of shoe-boxes filled with goodies to boys and girls all over the world. Every gift-filled shoe-box 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 shoe-box 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 shoe-box to the church office by NOVEMBER 15th! We will deliver your shoebox to the OCC collection site.
- No toothpaste or candy in the boxes, for shipping purposes.
