OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

National Collection Week
November 14-21, 2022

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 2022 is to collect 400 filled boxes! Shoeboxes will be available to take and fill beginning in October and National Collection week is November 14-21.

If dropping off on a Sunday morning doesn’t work for you, Briarcliff Church is a drop-off location with the following hours:  

November 14, 2022, 10 am to 12 pm  

November 15, 2022, 12 pm to 2 pm  

November 16, 2022, 10 am to 12 pm  

November 17, 2022, 3 pm to 5 pm  

November 18, 2022, 10 am to 12 pm  

November 19, 2022, 9 am to 11 am  

November 20, 2022, 1 pm to 3 pm  

November 21, 2022, 10 am to 12   

As an alternative option, you can BUILD A BOX ONLINE and the boxes will be counted toward Briarcliff Church’s total count.
