Our annual Operation Christmas Child season is in full swing. Its mission is to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to needy children around the world. Since 1993, Samaritan’s Purse has distributed over 94 million gift boxes to these youngsters ranging in age from 2 to 14 years old. Additionally, New Testament scripture, written in the recipient’s native language, is included in each box by Samaritan’s Purse.
Over the years, our gift boxes have been sent to numerous countries such as, Afghanistan, Kurdistan-Iraq, Madagascar, Jamaica, Latvia, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Liberia and Ecuador.
*FPC has acquired boxes for your convenience. The white boxes are located in the rear hallway by the elevator, along with other pertinent information you may need. Additionally, each box you fill should include the $7 Samaritan’s Purse shipping fee. The gift boxes need to be returned to the church by Sunday, November 17th. You may decorate the outside of your gift boxes, select a pre-decorated box by our youth groups or use your own similar sized box. You can get more info about OCC in the church lobby or by contacting Brad Hartill at 724-775-5776.
