Join us for this wonderful opportunity for individuals, the whole family or even a small group to pack a shoe box. Each box will bless a child in another country with special items from you and the Good News of Jesus Christ will be shared.
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) delivers millions of gift-filled shoe boxes to hurting and war-torn children around the world. This project is personal – a shoe box gift can be as unique as the person packing it. You can participate by filling any shoe box size box with small items. A suggested list is available, also indicating “what not to pack” items in the OCC “How to pack a shoebox gift” brochure. Then drop your filled shoe boxes off at the OCC table. For more information, visit the “Operation Christmas Child” table during weekend services.
Please return them to NCCC between Saturday, October 28 & Sunday Nov. 19.

Follow your shoe box online. You can be notified in December or January from Samaritan’s Purse through e-mail the destination of your shoe box by making your donation for shipping online. https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/follow-your-box-iframe/

Please PRAY for Operation Christmas Child. As we use these gifts to reach these precious children, may the Lord prepare their hearts in advance to accept His gift of salvation. Franklin Graham, President of Samaritan’s Purse, says that prayer is the most important part of this ministry. God makes these miracles happen. You may pick-up a Prayer Bookmark to use as your guide, at the OCC table.
