Operation Christmas Child

Celebrating 28 years of fulfilling the Great Commission!


Since 1993, 188 million shoebox gifts have been sent to over 170 Countries. These shoebox gifts are used by local Christians as a strategy for evangelism, discipleship, and the multiplication of believers and churches in their communities. More important than the items inside the shoebox, the gifts are an opportunity to share God’s love—and the Good News of Jesus Christ—with children in need. Local Christians who know the culture and language best are given effective resources in their own language and a solid Biblical foundation so that they can communicate the Gospel within their own communities through shoebox outreach events and The Greatest Journey discipleship program.


Bless boys and girls in need with a tangible expression of God’s love!

Our God-Sized goal is 2,000 Gospel opportunities, aka gift-filled shoeboxes.


Build your box in-person and return it to Colonial by Sunday, November 14, 2021.

Empty OCC boxes available on Sundays and in the church office during the week.
