Church Will Serve As Relay Center
Operation Christmas Child
OCC is a very effective means of telling the children of this world that God loves them. It also sends the message that the United States cares about them. To many hurting children, this is their only pleasant childhood memory and they never forget the joy of receiving that little box of gifts. Those shoe boxes not only carry gifts for children, they carry the Gospel of Christ which has led thousands to experience the saving Grace of God.
It is amazing to hear the many stories of entire families accepting Christ after hearing the Christmas message brought about by a shoe box of gifts. So, if you want to be a link in this incredible mission project, just get those shoe boxes rolling in. God can take your gift and turn it into a miracle.
First Baptist Church is serving as a Relay Center for the 2008 OCC collection season. That means we will receive boxes from local organizations during National Collection Week which is November 17 – 23 and then transport them to the Collection Center on the 24th.
