Operation Christmas Child

Destiny Church is participating in Operation Christmas Child (OCC).  We will be collecting boxes starting Sunday, September 1 through Sunday, October 13.  OCC is an opportunity to fill a shoebox with small toys, personal hygiene items and school supplies.  As shoe box gifts are distributed, local pastors or church

leaders present the Gospel in a fun way designed for kids while family and friends listen in.  The children also receive The Greatest Gift, a colorful presentation of the Gospel in their own language.  We are also accepting cash donations if you would like to sponsor a box.  (Please note: OCC does not accept a variety of items including candy, toothpaste, gum, used or damaged items, war-related items, chocolate or food including fruit rolls, drink mixes, liquids, lotions, vitamins, breakable items, etc.  Be sure to check their website for the complete list.) Shipping rates are $9.00 a box.  Please DO NOT make out any checks to Destiny Church.  We cannot cash your check – all checks must be made out to Operation Christmas Child.

Child.  Information and labels for your shoeboxes are available at the special table on Sundays.  We will be collecting boxes until Sunday, November 11th.  For more information visit their website at https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/pack-a-shoe-box/.
