We are so excited to partner with Samaritan’s Purse in Operation Christmas Child (OCC) again this year! We hope to see all our Grace Point community participate in our Christmas outreach opportunity where we hope to fill 650 shoeboxes! Samaritan’s Purse states that because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, “Now, more than ever, children need hope!”
