Operation Christmas Child

 700x90 OCC for websiteThe mission of Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Samaritans Purse is the organization through which we minister to children around the world at Christmas time. To learn more, watch this video or visit Samaritan's Purse.

"What makes Operation Christmas Child stir my heart is that each child who receives a box also receives an invitation to attend a twelve session course called the Greatest Journey. Here they learn the Gospel and how to share it. Whole villages have come to Christ, often in remote places."  -Charlet, Project Leader
