OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Briarcliff Church has the opportunity to reach families with the Gospel through Operation Christmas Child. OCC is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They ship these simple gifts to children affected by war, poverty, natural disasters, famine, and disease. For some, this may be the first time they learn about the gospel.
Each year we set a shoebox goal at Briarcliff Church. Our goal in 2021 is to collect 400 filled boxes! Shoeboxes will be available to take and fill beginning October 2nd and National Collection week is November 15-22. As an alternative option, you can BUILD A BOX ONLINE and the boxes will be counted toward Briarcliff Church’s total count.
