Operation Christmas Child

Good News. Great Joy.

We are so excited to partner with Operation Christmas Child (OCC) again this year! Starting in May we will be collecting WOW items for shoeboxes that will help spread the Gospel all around the world. OCC demonstrates God's love to children in need worldwide by delivering gift-filled shoeboxes and the good news of Jesus Christ!


WOW items are the item in each shoebox that make an impact on the child. It’s the gift that they get excited about and show all their friends. Please help us reach our goal by November by bringing in WOW items for boys and girls starting now. The age ranges are 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.

We will be filling the shoeboxes together at a packing party in November. Other items we will be receiving cash donations for and purchasing them in bulk to get the best value.


WOW item examples:

  • Stuffed Animals
  • Dolls
  • Deflated Soccer Ball w/pump
  • Toy Trucks
  • Clothing Outfit
  • Small Musical Instrument (harmonica, recorder)
