2020 has been a year full of changes. One thing that hasn’t changed is that people need to hear the Gospel. Operation Christmas Child sends the Gospel around the world. Please begin praying now for the OCC program, the volunteers, and the recipients of the shoeboxes.
We have many options for participation…
- Go online to smaritanspurse.org where you can donate $25 and they will pack a box for you.
- You may pack a box yourself (boxes are available in the Sr. Ladies SS Classroom). When complete, return the box to church with $9 to cover shipping. You may also pay your shipping online and track your box to its destination. (See list of Do’s & Don’ts below)
- You may donate $money$ and we will shop for you and pack your box.
