Operation Christmas Child

Collection week 2019: November 18 - 25

For the past several years, we have been honored to participate with Samaritan's Purse and Operation Christmas Child. By packing a shoebox full of gifts for children in need around the world, you can remind them they are loved and give them a chance to hear the good news of the Gospel!

Not sure what to pack in your shoebox? Check out the official packing list.

First MB Church is a regional relay center, so you can drop your box off with us. You can do this any Sunday morning by stopping by the Connect Table. If you have large quantities to drop off (50 boxes or more), please bring them by during these hours:

  • Monday, November 18: 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, November 19: 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
  • Wednesday, November 20: 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
  • Thursday, November 21: 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
  • Friday, November 22: 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
  • Saturday, November 23: 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, November 24: 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
  • Monday, November 25: 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

The drop off location is the upper lobby by the main entrance (under the canopy). We will have hand carts to help unload large numbers of boxes.
