Operation Christmas Child
Are held during Summer Reach Out nights
In late October
Collection week is usually the second week of November and all the OCC boxes are prayed over during a Sunday morning service before they are sent out to the children.
Our church goal is to send around 400 boxes. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received. The shoebox gifts bless the children and provide opportunities to share the true meaning of Christmas. You can find wonderful shoebox stories and additional information at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ
The youth ministry of First Baptist Church Tanner oversees this ministry. Contact Jacob Chandler or Rebecca Chandler to see how you can get involved in this ministry.
