Operation Christmas Child

Collection week 2020: November 16 - 23

We are honored to participate with Samaritan's Purse and Operation Christmas Child to serve children around the world. By packing a shoebox full of gifts, you can remind a child they are loved and give them a chance to hear the good news about who Jesus is!

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 during these hours:

  • Monday, November 16: 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
  • Tuesday, November 17: 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, November 18: 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
  • Thursday, November 19: 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
  • Friday, November 20: 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
  • Saturday, November 21: 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, November 22: 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
  • Monday, November 23: 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.
