Operation Christmas Child

Give. Serve. Go.


Each year FBC Lake participates in the exciting mission of sending shoeboxes around the world through Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child. You can participate by giving a monetary donation which will be used to fill shoeboxes for OCC or pay the shipping for completed shoeboxes. Or you can contribute by filling shoeboxes and bringing the complete box to FBC Lake. Below is a link for instructions for how to pack a shoebox.



For a second year FBC Lake will serve as the Regional Collection Center for Samaritan’s Purse. This means FBC Lake will be the collection point for a multi-county region on Nov. 12-19, 2018. You can serve on the collection team by registering at Connection Central at FBC Lake. We need volunteers to help load containers, register church donations, pray over boxes and serve refreshments to other volunteers. A schedule and registration list will be available in the weeks to come.


Each year a team from FBC Lake travels to Atlanta, GA to serve at Samaritan’s Purse National Collection Center. This year’s trip is scheduled for November 23-24, 2018. The cost of the trip is approximately $50 plus food and includes transportation and lodging. Registration for the trip will begin in October 2018.
