Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. OCC provides children around the world with shoe boxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching them in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. These boxes are shipped outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
We’re encouraging all of our River-family to fill a shoe box! If you aren’t able to fill one by
yourself, join with your small group, friends, or neighbors!
Collections will be accepted in the Ministry Center November 3-24.
