We're thrilled to be able to participate in Operation Christmas Child again this year! OCC - a ministry of Samaritan's Purse - delivers gift-filled shoeboxes to children around the globe; and each year, FBCNM has sent between 150-225 boxes!
From the OCC website:
Every year since, Samaritan’s Purse has collected shoebox gifts filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items for children around the world. Since 1993, more than 178 million children in more than 150 countries have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox. The project delivers not only the joy of what, for many kids, is their first gift ever, but also gives them a tangible expression of God’s love.
Our Kick-Off Sunday will be October 18th
Dedication Sunday (all boxes due back) will be November 15th
