Glad Tidings Church has been a part of the OCC ministries for over 20 years!
What is OCC?
"OCC" stands for Operation Christmas Child. Since 1993, more than 168 million boys and girls in over 160 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.
What To Expect
Because of COVID-concerns, this year will be somewhat different in that we will not be having a large packing party as we have in the past. We are currently planning on packing with smaller groups Wednesday October 7 through Wednesday October 14. Specific times and location will be announced as the date draws near.
While it has been a very different year we are still planning on packing 1,000 + gifts this year to be used as a resource to share the gospel and be a blessing to a child in a hard to reach country.
