Operation Christmas Child Club
The mission of Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. For many years at FBCA, students in Preschool-12th Grade have enjoyed packing shoebox gifts for the ministry of Operation Christmas Child. By participating, it is an integral part of sharing God’s love and the gospel message with children in over 100+ countries. Every fall, each classroom collects items for the shoebox gifts (small toys, school supplies, hygiene items) and plans a special day for a packing party, where the students and teachers build their shoebox gifts.
FBCA students, in 8th-12th grades, have an opportunity to apply to go on the 3-day trip to an Operation Christmas Child Processing Center with the FBCA group. This is a fun and meaningful way for your students to volunteer and participate in missions. Students must be age 13 years or older and be in good academic standing.
