Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Ministry

Operation Christmas Child, a Samaritan's Purse ministry, delivers happiness to children living in difficult circumstances through gift-filled shoe boxes. Since 1993, more than 94 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God's love through shoe box gifts, enabling local churches and ministry partners to share the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ-God's greatest gift.  Click here to go the OCC website.

This is an annual ministry at Redeemer.  Typically, empty shoeboxes may be picked up in the Welcome Centerfor two weeks beginning the last Sunday in October.  Filled shoeboxes are returned to Redeemer by the 2nd Sunday of November.
