Serving within the church community is a great way to live our your faith. Our church offers many different volunteer opportunities across all ages. We also have options for those willing to contribute their time to our partnerships outside of OCF.

Ways to Serve Others… from Home

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. How? By filling a shoebox with fun gifts, hygiene items and school supplies. We have shoeboxes available at OCF that you may pick up during office hours (Sun 10:00am-1:00pm; Mon-Thurs 10:00am-3:00pm), or you have the option to build a box online! You may also use a shoebox laying in your house right now! Click on our resource links below for more information, or please contact Shannon Ferguson.
