Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Working through Samaritan’s Purse, Watkinsville First Baptist serves as a collection center for shoeboxes from around the community.   

National Collection Week is Nov 16-23.  You can drop off your shoeboxes in the Sanctuary foyer (near the admin offices) during these hours: 

Mon – Nov 16: 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Tues – Nov 17: 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Wed – Nov 18: 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
