Operation Christmas Child

    A BIG SHOUT OUT and THANK YOU to all who gave towards this year’s OCC Christmas in August packing party!  Over $6500 was given towards the boxes and shipping.  And more than 40 of you helped pack the 250 boxes.  We were thrilled with the quality of items received through the Shippensburg warehouse.  And, most importantly, 250 more children will receive the good news of Jesus Christ through our church efforts. Way to go LAEFC!!!


OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD will launch on Sunday, October 23 for our annual family and individual giving!  And, we will continue our local outreach by handing out gift bags to the children at TrueLife Youth Ministries (previously known as Youth for Christ).  Mark it on your calendars, start collecting items, and our goal this year is 500 boxes in addition to the August packing party event.  Please pray that your box(es) will be placed into the little hands that God intended.  So many stories are shared how children on the other side of the world are praying for a specific need, only to be found in their box.   And, be sure to add a note to the child in your box.
