 We are once again partnering with Samaritan's Purse and serving as the

Operation Christmas Child shoebox local drop off center for

Warsaw, Winona Lake, & the surrounding areas on

November 13-20, 2023!

See below for how you can help.



  1. PACK A SHOEBOX To see how to pack a shoebox in-person, check out the instructions to pack one in-person by clicking HERE. To see how to pack a shoebox online instead by using OCC's website, click HERE.
  2. PRAY Prayer is so important as these shoeboxes are being sent to places that might never have heard the gospel of Jesus Christ before! We need to pray that each box will go to just the right child so that it can make the greatest impact for God’s Kingdom! Pray for the missionaries & native pastors who will be distributing the boxes & teaching Bible schools. Many steps to be prayed over as these boxes travel to the nations of the world.
  3. DONATE You can donate filler items and/or money for the postage (takes $10. per shoebox to ship) by Nov. 13. Volunteers pack shoeboxes throughout collection week. You can donate a bunch of items including toys, school supplies, clothing, & hygiene items (remember the item would need to fit inside a shoebox with some other items). Ideas for fillers can be found by clicking HERE. Stipulations include: no liquids (soap, glue, etc.), no foods, no toothpaste, and no war related items.
  4. VOLUNTEER during collection week (Nov. 13-20). First Christian Church is the drop off site for Operation Christmas Child in this area. To volunteer to serve during drop off week, click HERE.

If you would like to get involved with this amazing opportunity to spread the love of Jesus to children all over the world, you can click on the links above for further instructions including sign up to volunteer or how to pack a shoebox in-person or online.

God bless!
