Share Christ's love throughout the world by participating in Operation Christmas Child!
Donate Items: Our American Heritage Girls are collecting items to pack shoeboxes. Items needed include school supplies, soaps/washcloths, toothbrushes/combs, T-shirts, socks, and accessories. Note: NO Candy or Toothpaste.
Please drop donations in the Christmas box near the coat racks by November 3rd.
Pack a box: Pack a shoebox or two with your family, bible study or small group. Look for information at the OCC display in the Narthex. Filled boxes are due to Pender on November 24th.
Pray: Pray that God will direct each person packing shoeboxes to put in just the right items for the child who will receive the box. Pray also that the children will receive Christ as their Lord and Saviour - the best gift of all.
Provide shipping: Donations for shipping are needed as each box costs $9 to ship. Checks should be made out to Pender UMC, with OCC in the memo. Donations may also be made online at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ.
Receive boxes: Help receive packed shoeboxes from the community between Nov. 18th -25th. Training will be provided. Positions include greeting visitors and unloading and packing up filled shoeboxes.
