Operation Christmas Child Continues Despite COVID

Now more than ever, children need great joy! This Christmas, you can give kids in need a tangible expression of God’s love through a gift-filled shoebox.

There are two ways to participate:

Option 1:

Boxes are ready in the ladies’ Sunday School Class. Boxes are flat and easy to assemble. Labels and packing instructions are located in fellowship hall with finished boxes. Pack the shoebox/es with gifts such as stuffed animals, balls, toys, school supplies, and hygiene items. (If you are not comfortable visiting stores, consider ordering items from Amazon or another mail-order company.) Along with a $9 donation per box for shipping and processing, return the boxes before Sunday, November 15th 2020. Checks for shipping can be made to OFBC with OCC shipping on memo line.
