The 2017 Operation Christmas Child event will be held October 8th thru October 29th. Let’s share the Good News of Jesus with children across the world by filling a shoe box with Gifts of Love. Please stop by the desk in the foyer and grab one or more collection boxes to fill and a donation list.

Ways you can become involved in making this years’ event a huge success:

· Pack your own shoe box and bring it to the church before November 5th.

· Donate items for the Packing Party (see Kim Dacunto and Kari Blass for a list of items)

· Make a monetary donation for the purchase of items for the shoe boxes

· Join us for the “Packing Party” on November 5th to fill the shoe boxes with donated items

There will be lots of exciting events planned this year for everyone to become involved in. Please see Kim Dacunto or Kari Blass at the desk in the foyer for other exciting events that will be happening with OCC. Last year we did 350 boxes and this year’s goal is 500!!

If you have any questions or for more information on how to become involved, please see Kari Blass at or Kim Dacunto at
