Operation Christmas Child
​​​​​​​(OCC Shoeboxes)

About OCC

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Through this project, Samaritan’s Purse partners with the local church worldwide to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and make disciples of the nations. 

 

“Every box is an opportunity to reach a child with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
—Franklin Graham - President, Samaritan's Purse

“Let the children come to Me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” - Mark 10:14, ESV

Pack a Shoebox - Share Christmas

Pickup Your Box

We will have boxes available at worship, the church office, our preschool office, and during our Falleluia event for you to pick up beginning October 17th.  

 

No time to pickup a box or go shopping? There's an online option to build a box from your web browser!  

Pack Your Box

Pack one or several boxes for your age and gender child selected on your tag.  All items need to fit in the provided box, and don't forget to include your $9 for shipping (please do not tape boxes closed to help with shipping/processing).  Including a personal note or photo, especially from a child or grandchild, is a great addition!

What to Pack (and what not to!)

Pray for Your Box

We believe in the power of prayer and the power of these shoeboxes.  Join us in worship at any of our services on Sunday November 7th as we see all the boxes from our Asbury Community in one place and pray over them in worship.
