About This Activity

OCC is short for "Operation Christmas Child".  This ministry was created by Franklin Graham,
Billy Graham's son and touches the lives of millions of children around the
world and lets them know that Jesus Christ loves them through "the power
of a simple gift".  Our ministry is
more than a ministry at the Rock Church we not only take a shoe box, wrap it in
Christmas paper, and fill it with a variety of gifts that will bring happiness
to a child, but we also make sure to pray over each individual box before we
ship it.  This guarantees that the box
will be given to the very child who needs it. The OCC ministry receives
donations throughout the year and most of the fundraiser proceeds go toward the
cost of shipping the shoe boxes, which is exactly $7 per box.  Each shoe box symbolizes hope and lets the
children know that nothing is impossible to God.  Poverty will not hinder their dreams.  Jesus will guide them!
