Operation Christmas Child

Since Mort Bradley first started many years ago, Lakeside Presbyterian Church has been involved with Operation Christmas Child and part of sharing the Gospel with millions of children around the world. Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is one of many components of Samaritan’s Purse, an international ministry led by Franklin Graham.

Our hope is to reach out to other churches, schools and organizations in the Reservoir area to continue to grow our community participation with OCC.

Operation Christmas Child National Collection week is November 18-25, 2019. If you are participating this year, please have your shoebox turned in by November 20.

The OCC cardboard boxes are available in our sanctuary foyer or through the church office. However, you may also used a decorated cardboard shoebox from home OR a plastic shoebox with lid. See the gift suggestion guide below for help with packing your box! Starting this year, toothpaste and candy will not be allowed in shoeboxes, due to customs regulations.
