Operation Christmas Child (OCC)
Time Commitment: Weekly in November
Coordinator: Pam Livesay
We partner with Samaritan’s Purse to fill shoeboxes with Christmas presents for needy children around the world. The gifts are a “Door Opener” to allow trained members of Samaritan’s Purse to present the Good News of Jesus Christ. This partnership allows us to participate in sharing the Gospel worldwide.
Once the shoeboxes are filled, we act as a collect point of the boxes for this area south of Houston. We package the individual boxes and take them to a distribution center that then helps in distribution around the world.
