Operation Christmas Child is taking the Good News of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth through your shoebox gift!
Share the Good News
Each shoebox is an opportunity to reach a child with the Gospel, telling children and families around the world that God loves them.
Legacy Church will have Operation Christmas Child (OCC) shoeboxes available to be filled starting Sunday, October 18th. Take as many as you can fill, then return them during the campaign, October 25th - November 15th. We will have shoeboxes available throughout the campaign, so feel free to come back for more! We will need all shoeboxes returned no later than November 15th.
If you are unable to go out and shop, consider building a box online. For only $25, which includes the $9 shipping donation. When you build a box online, OCC then packs it for easier passage through customs in hard-to-reach nations of the world.
As you prayerfully prepare to pack your shoebox gift please remember that each child is only given one shoebox in their lifetime and your shoebox may be the only gift the child ever receives. So, plan to pack quality items that will last.
See just how a shoebox and the message of the Gospel impacted this recipient.
We want to set the bar a bit higher this year, so we are upping our goal. We know God will work in amazing ways through these boxes because each recipient hears the Gospel story in their own language as well. Each shoebox can impact 10 or more people as children share with their families and friends.
- Our 2020 Goal for Online Shoeboxes is 30! Pack a shoebox online HERE
- Our 2002 Goal for Physical Boxes is 130!
Lifegroup Challenge - Winner is the Lifegroup that packs the most shoeboxes.
Members of a Lifegroup pack shoeboxes at a "virtual" or social distancing Lifegroup Packing Party. At your online group meeting, families spread out with a wide angle camera shot to pack your boxes together as a Lifegroup, but in your own homes. If meeting outside, spread out on family blankets and pack boxes at your outdoor Lifegroup gathering. Either way, your Lifegroup will be making a huge difference. As you return your boxes, make sure to tell us your Lifegroup tally by emailing that final tally to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Family Challenge - Winner is the family whose packing party pictures depict total family participation with the highest level of family fun, creativity, and enthusiasm. As your family packs their shoebox, snap a few pictures and make sure to email them to email@example.com for your challenge entry.
Note - each box is counted in the Lifegroup Challenge tally or the Family Challenge tally, but not both. If you want to enter both challenges, pack multiple boxes!
