Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child

Gathering Place (map)

This year, UCC is a dropoff site for Operation Christmas Child (OCC). We will be open several hours every day during the National Collection Week, November 13 - 20.

We encourage all of UCC to get involved in this fun and exciting ministry. OCC's mission is to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to needy children around the world and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. When you fill a shoe box with gift items for a child around the world you give them the hope of Jesus. Samaritan's Purse provides a book written in the child's language for each shoe box gift so that every child gets the opportunity to hear about the God who loves them and the Savior who died for them. Join us as we spread the love and message of Jesus Christ around the world this Christmas.

For more information on how to pack a shoe box or to volunteer during the drop off hours please contact Kenna McFall.

Kenna McFall, kenna@uccmanhattan.net, Children's Minister
