Join us for our Operation Christmas Child Packing Party on Saturday, November 4th from 10:00 a.m. to noon in Hightower Hall.
To make this day a success, we need your help!
First, even if you can’t make the party itself, you can help by bringing in items to pack in the shoeboxes. We’re hoping to pack at least 200 boxes this day to go toward our 1,001 shoebox goal, so we need lots of items to make this happen! You can download a list of items needed here. Every gift of school supplies, non-liquid hygiene items, and toys helps us get there. Drop off items in the collection bins in the Welcome Center, Hightower Hall and the Lobby on Sundays or in the church office during the week. You can also donate money toward this effort by writing OCC on your check or giving envelope. We need donated items and money by noon on Friday, November 3rd.
Secondly, come and pack with us! We’re going to get started at 10:00 a.m. and pack until noon, or until all the boxes are finished. Don’t worry; childcare is available. Pastor Steve has fun activities planned in the gym for children up to 5th grade.
Grab, Pack, Stack, Repeat
Our Packing Party is an opportunity for you to come help us pack the items that people have donated. We’ll have stations set up for all the various items available to pack. Just grab a box, walk around and put items inside, get them ready for shipping, then do it all over again. It’s such fun! At the end, we’ll stack the boxes and pray over them.
Prayer is so important. Please be in prayer now for Operation Christmas Child. Pray about how God would like for you to be involved. Pray for our efforts to collect boxes, the volunteers throughout Samaritan’s Purse that will deliver the boxes, and especially for the recipients of the boxes. OCC is a wonderful way for us to help spread the gospel and make disciples.
If you want to bring in your already filled boxes this day, you can do that as well! The last Sunday to turn in boxes is November 12th.
