3 Ways to Give

Christmas Child

Every year, our church partners with Samaritan Ministries to provide hundreds of shoebox gifts for needy children all over the world.  Here are three ways to participate:

  • Pack a Shoebox. To find out more about how to pack a shoebox or gift suggestions, visit Samaritan Ministries at this link.  Please note that toothpaste and candy are no longer allowed in shoeboxes due to customs regulations. A $9 donation per shoebox is needed to cover shipping and ministry expenses.
  • OCC Packing Party on Sunday, November 10 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. Dinner will be provided.  To preregister for this packing party, click here. This is a great event for families, life groups, friends, couples, and singles to connect while serving. Recommended age is 3 and up.  The deadline to register is November 8 at Noon.
