Operation Christmas Child (OCC)
Central Drop-Off Team Leader: Lanelle Amann

GOOD NEWS - GREAT JOY

Since its founding in 1993, Operation Christmas Child has distributed over 148 million shoebox gifts to children living in destitute conditions around the world.  Sponsored by Samaritan's Purse International, a non-profit Christian Relief Organization based in Boone, NC, Operation Christmas Child is all about sharing Jesus Christ through a simple shoebox packed with "gifts of love" - a tangible expression of God's love to children living in a dark world of poverty, war and uncertain futures.  Along with the shoebox gift, children receive a booklet in their native language, "The Greatest Gift" explaining the plan of salvation and the love of Jesus Christ.  "The Greatest Journey",  a 12-lesson discipleship program, is offered to the children "after the shoebox".

   First Baptist Church is the 2017 Operation Christmas Child Central Drop-Off Center for Bastrop County and surrounding areas.  All shoeboxes packed by churches, organizations, businesses, groups and individuals can be dropped off at FBC during National Collection week Nov.13th-20th...see drop-off schedule below.  It is here that the shoeboxes are cartoned then transported to the Dallas Processing Center for inspection prior to being shipped overseas to children.
