Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse. Each year in November shoeboxes are packed and then sent off to children all over the world. These "Gospel Opportunity" or "GO boxes" not only deliver simple gifts to children but they also bring the good news of Jesus to them and their families. Lives are transformed because of these boxes. 


Through out the year we collect items for the shoeboxes as well as financial donations to help purchase needed items for boxes as well as help cover shipping costs for the boxes. Items can be placed in the designated basket under the coffee machine near the Missions' Wall. It costs $9 per box for shipping. Financial donations can be dropped in the offering box and designated for OCC.
