Operation Christmas Child Packing Party

Operation Christmas Child Packing Party

Join us Sunday, November 12 at noon for our annual Operation Christmas Child (OCC) Shoebox Packing Party. The afternoon brings together all ages to serve and is a wonderful way for our entire congregation to serve together. The packing party will be held in the gym at Shakopee West Junior High. Lunch will be provided.

Brookwood’s OCC team has been busy collecting items for the shoeboxes all year. Last year our church filled 1114 boxes which were sent to Zambia and Tanzania. Our goal for this year is 1200 boxes! You can also help financially. For every shoebox, OCC requests a donation of $9 to cover the cost of shipping. Visit: https://www.classy.org/fundraise?fcid=1014972 to make a financial contribution.

Operation Christmas Child collects gift-filled shoeboxes and delivers them in Christ’s name to children around the world. These shoeboxes demonstrate God’s love and open doors for presenting the Gospel. Last year alone, over 1.2 million children accepted Jesus as their Savior because of OCC. That is 146 kids per hour or 2.43 kids per minute! The Holy Spirit is at work and Brookwood is joining the effort.

We look forward to serving together!
