PSBC and OCC Shoebox Gifts

OCC Shoebox Gift Time!

Every year, Pendleton Street Baptist Church participates in Operation Christmas Child, by filling shoeboxes with gifts for a boy or a girl, and helping Samaritan’s Purse ship these boxes overseas to children in need. In 2018, over 11 million shoeboxes were collected world-wide. Last year, PSBC collected 63 shoebox gifts and monetary donations to ship and fill many more! Let’s fill even more shoeboxes this year!

You can use an OCC Shoebox or one of your own. Fill the box with a stuffed animal, small toys, pencils, school supplies, crayons, socks, toothbrushes… whatever fits! (Please no toothpaste, no candy or perishable food, no liquids.) For a donation of only $9.00 to help with shipping, your box will travel to a needy child and help deliver the gospel as well. Bring your boxes to the PSBC Worship Service on or before Sunday, November 17th, so that we can deliver them to a collection site during the OCC National Collection Week (Nov. 18-25).

As shoebox gifts are distributed, local pastors or church leaders present the Gospel in a fun way designed for kids while family and friends listen in. Along with their gift, children also receive The Greatest Gift, a colorful presentation of the Gospel in their own language. But this is just the beginning. After receiving shoebox gifts, many children are invited back to participate in our discipleship program, The Greatest Journey. Through this 12-lesson course, which includes Bible stories and Scripture memorization, they learn how to follow Christ in their daily lives as they share Him with friends and family. Be a part of changing children’s lives all over the world in Jesus’ Name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.
