OCC_logoThe church participates in Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ. In addition to Operation Christmas Child, in which church members pack shoe boxes full of goodies for children around the world, the church has also contributed to the organization by raising money to purchase livestock and build homes for those in need.
