Our church has been able to get involved with Operation Christmas Child in many rewarding ways. Now there is a new opportunity to serve! Come join us at the OCC Processing Center in Jessup on Friday, December 12. You’ll get to sort through boxes to check for quality, and your hands can be the last to touch a life-changing shoebox before it leaves the United States. more…
