Join us as we partner with Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan's Purse, to deliver good news and great joy to children this upcoming holiday season.

Shoeboxes are packed in the fall with gifts and the story of the gospel and sent all over the globe to be distributed for Christmas. And it's never too early to start shopping!

Pick up gift items any time throughout the year (many deals can be found during back-to school sales in July and August).   Samaritan's Purse has provided great, detailed information about how to pack a box, including recommended items for different age groups and specific requests of what NOT to pack.

More details will be coming this fall on the set drop-off times at Trinity for packed boxes.  You can also donate through Trinity towards the purchase of extra gifts and packing of additional boxes; indicate "OCC" on your check or select it on the giving page online.
