Lake Tulloch Bible Church


"Be the Church"

Operation Christmas Child


Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is an important worldwide ministry of Samaritan's Purse in which Lake Tulloch Bible Church actively participates. LTBC has a team working on a new plan for filling shoe boxes for OCC. Each month starting in April, we will collect items in 6 categories.  We are setting up a table in the Fellowship Hall with bins to drop the donations in.  Suggested gifts are listed below and will also be available at the table.  Each  month, there will be a new category and a new list of suggested gifts.
At the end of October, we will set up all of the donated items and have a packing party.  Our goal for 2024 is to pack 200 boxes. We are excited to see how well we can do when we work together as a church to spread the gospel through this program.
