Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse. The organization serves the Church worldwide to promote the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

First Baptist Church has participated in OCC for the past 20 years. Each year we collect shoeboxes for Babies, Kids, and Teens. For a list of items for each age group click the links above.

Operation Christmas Child collects shoeboxes every year in November and delivers them to children all over the world in more than 100 countries. Since 1993 Operation Christmas Child has delivered more than 168 million shoebox gifts.  To learn more go to https://www.samaritanspurse.org


Our Church packing party is on September 18th at 6PM was a great success.  Here are some pictures from the event!
