Operation Christmas Child


The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

For several years, Christian Life Center has partnered with Samaritan's Purse to pack Operation Christmas Child (OCC) boxes to send around the world!

Since 1993, more than 178 million children in more than 150 countries have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox. The project delivers not only the joy of what, for many kids, is their first gift ever, but also gives them a tangible expression of God’s love.

OCC is an important ministry at Christian Life Center!  We love gathering, and packing, shoeboxes!  If you would like to help in this vital ministry, please reach out to us!

We are currently purchasing items year-round for our boxes!  If you would like to know what should be purchased each month, please visit:  https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/year-round-packing-ideas/ (we have also reproduced the suggestions below).



1. Grab your box outside the Worship Center and fill it up using the ideas here.
2. Click here to go to the donation page and either make a donation to Operation Christmas Child or pack a box online and Samaritan's Purse will do the rest. 
3. Join us at our annual box packing party to help pack boxes Saturday, October 22 at 3pm. We have a great time and fellowship while we prepare boxes to bless these children.
