Operation Christmas Child

OCC_logo (Custom)Operation Christmas Child

“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” Luke 10:36-37


Each fall, the entire Hosanna congregation is invited to participate  in Operation Christmas Child! Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is an effort to show God’s love by filling shoe boxes with toys and supplies that children over the world will enjoy and use. Once filled, the shoe boxes are prepared for shipping in the fall so that needy children receive them in time for Christmas. This effort is a tangible way that Hosanna disciples of all ages can connect others to Jesus.


The Operation Christmas Child was created and is supported by Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian SmilingBox (Custom)organization—led by Franklin Graham– providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world.
