Operation Christmas Child 2018

OCC Boxes Now Available!

NEW  and IMPROVED this year – the boxes have been made with sturdier construction and are bigger for holding the “WOW” items! First ARP will be adding a drawstring bag to the boxes for children to enjoy decorating and using as a permanent way to keep and store their Christmas items. Please consider, individually or as a group, donating or packing a set of sharpie markers (8-12 pack set) for each box that you fill up with goodies. This will give every child a set of markers to personalize their bag. If you are unable to pack a box and would like to provide Sharpies, marker donations may be dropped off at Leslie Farrar’s office located on the first floor lobby.

Dedication Sunday will be November 18. Thank you to our youth who folded boxes in preparation for pickup! Our churchwide trip to the OCC warehouse will be Wednesday, Dec. 5 from 5:00-9:00pm. All youth and parent participants please contact Lynn Haubert – lwhaubert@gmail.com, ADULT participants not serving as youth chaperones should contact Leslie Farrar – lfarrar@firstarpchurch.org for transportation information. Warehouse participants must be 13 years or older and have signed permission form if under 18 years of age.
