Operation Christmas Child

We are very excited to partner again this year with Operation Christmas Child to pack shoeboxes and get the good news of Jesus Christ to kids around the world. In 2019 we packed 4135 shoeboxes and this year we are aiming to break the 5000 mark!

There are different ways you can get involved with Operation Christmas Child this year.


Pick up a shoebox when exiting the service (starting October 18), stuff it full of fun items along with a cheque for $10. This $10 helps cover the cost of shipping, as well as to provide training and equipping for the receiving local groups which ultimately multiplies the gospel opportunities. Please drop it back to the church on one of the collection dates below. If you attend Hope Oakville we will still accept them Sunday, November 22. HERE are some great tips on how to pack a shoebox. Better yet, pack two shoeboxes...


Packing a shoebox gift online is simple!

  • Select from a variety of gift items for a boy or girl in each designated age group
  • Personalize each shoebox you pack with a photo and personal note


Boxes can be returned to the cart in front of the church any day leading up to the final collection days.

The final collection days are the following:

  • Thursday, November 19
    10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
  • Friday, November 20
    10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Saturday, November 21
    10:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Hundreds of volunteers are serving year-round in their local communities to reach hurting children through Operation Christmas Child each year. They are mobilizing churches, community groups, prayer support and media coverage in order to engage participation in giving shoeboxes through Operation Christmas Child. We are looking to expand our Connect Team in Oakville and would love your support.
