Operation Christmas Child is part of the work of Samaritan’s Purse, an international organization providing spiritual and physical aid to impoverished communities around the world. Operation Christmas Child is the opportunity to give children all over the world a shoebox of gifts for the holiday season filled with toys, goodies, and the message of God’s love and hope. In 2010, Convergence packed and sent out 70 boxes to children and this year we’re gearing up for more! Shoe boxes are being provided on Sundays with instructions on how to pack them. If you would like to make a donation instead, we will be making shoe boxes valued at $20 each ($7 of that covers shipping costs). You can make a check payable to Convergence Church with “OCC” in the memo line for as many boxes as you would like to donate. Participate in this ministry to bless a child around the world this holiday season!
