Our ministry stands behind the principle, "No one has it ALL together; but TOGETHER we have it ALL!

Operation Christmas Child
OCC is a year round opportunity here at DBC to give children around the world some basic school supplies, hygiene items and small toys packaged in a shoebox. A monthly list of items needed is distributed to church members so they can bring suggested items to prepare for the "packing party" that takes place in mid November. After the boxes are packed they are delivered to a distribution center in Atlanta GA where the boxes are processed to send to children around the world. Each year in early December a team of volunteers heads to Atlanta to the distribution center to help process shoe boxes coming in from churches and individuals around the country.
Tuesday: depart early for Atlanta, lunch in Chattanooga
Dinner & shopping on your own at the Mall of Georgia
Thursday: travel home, stop for lunch, home by dinner
We will be staying at the Hampton Inn in Lawrenceville. Breakfast is included in your room.
Total cost for room (2 nights)
1 per room $ 220
2 per room $ 110 (each person)

Sign up immediately, last day for payment is November 4.
Please contact Cynthia Fox O'Connor or Judy Taylor as soon as possible if you are interested in traveling to Atlanta to the Distribution Center.
Local Christians around the world are taught to host a successful shoebox outreach event where they share the Gospel and invite children to participate in follow-up discipleship. Children are taught from a booklet full of colorful pictures and a suggested Scripture to be used as they present the Gospel message in a child-friendly way. After boys and girls hear the Good News, they receive a surprise that may be their first gift ever. They hold in their hands a tangible expression of God’s love...a shoe box filled with things they may not have ever had in their lives.
