Operation Christmas Child Boxes: Everyday boys and girls suffer from war, poverty, disease, and
natural disasters. OCC makes it possible for millions of these children to experience God’s love through
shoeboxes filled with gifts by caring individuals and families. We have the boxes in the entry area. We have both plastic or the printed kind, please take either and fill them with your gifts for a child in need. Remember we cannot send candy or toothpaste this year. Last year our church filled 129 boxes. We are shooting for at least 140 this year. Please consider filling a box this year to help a child who may not get a Christmas gift at all.
