- What are we doing? OCC Packing Party
- When is it? Sat. Nov. 17 from 1-3pm at GCO
- What is OCC? Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. You can click on this link to find out more about their ministry.
- What is a "Packing Party"? We have been gathering items for shoeboxes all year! The packing party is your opportunity to help us fill shoeboxes, which we will give to Samaritain's Purse to distribute. Our goal this year is 600 boxes! You get to choose the items that go into the shoebox. You can write a note to the child who will receive that box and pray for them. This is a nice opportunity for the whole church to do a gospel opportunity service project together, all ages! Last year we had all ages, from a 3 yr old to 90 yr old packing!
- Is there anything else I can do? If you are able to help with any shipping costs ($9 per box), please donate at the following link: https://fundraise.samaritanspurse.org/GCO-2018
