Operation Chirstmas Child at BBC

Join us as we build shoebox gifts to send to children in need around the world.

An Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift is an opportunity for a child to discover, know, and share Jesus Christ. In 2022, our church packed 460 shoeboxes, and we saw more than 16,000 boxes leave our Northwest Michigan (10 county) area. Our 2023 goal is 500 shoeboxes! 

How can you help us reach this goal? 

Keep packing boxes and help us collect enough items for our November packing party. Our hope and prayer is that by focusing our efforts, careful planning, and diligent preparation we will see even more gospel opportunities (shoeboxes) sent around the world. Please see Glenda Kelsey for details.
