Operation Christmas Child // Update
December 1, 2017
Thank you for supporting the Operation Christmas Child (OCC) shoe box campaign. It was exciting to see our community engage with this opportunity in such a significant way. Shoe boxes are a powerful means to spreading the Gospel and building the kingdom around the world. OCC research indicates that 1 in 10 boxes distributed results in a child accepting Christ and entering an extended discipleship relationship.
This year we collected 4,433 shoe boxes from the church, LCS and surrounding community. Our church alone contributed 1,941 boxes and that is an increase of 197 boxes from last year.
To date we have received over $9,600 for water filters; another incredible indication of the heart of the people of Grant to make a practical difference and proclaim the love of Christ. All of this would not be possible without the tremendous effort of our volunteer OCC team! Thank you to Lori Bettig and her team!
