National Collection Week
November 13-20, 2023

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.  Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts delight the hearts of boys and girls in more than 100 countries where Samaritan’s Purse local partners deliver the shoeboxes along with the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  For some children, it is their first gift ever!  Many shoebox recipients also participate in the follow-up discipleship program, The Greatest Journey, where they learn to know Jesus, grow in faith, and spread the Good News.

Each year we set a shoebox goal at Briarcliff Church. Our goal in 2023 is to collect 400 filled boxes! Shoeboxes will be available to take and fill beginning in October and National Collection week is November 13-20.

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

November 13, 2023, 10 am to 12 pm  

November 14, 2023, 12 pm to 2 pm  

November 15, 2023, 10 am to 12 pm

November 19, 2023, 1 pm to 3 pm  

November 20, 2023, 10 am to 12
