OCC Global Shoebox TourEmmanuel Baptist Church is excited to partner with Operation Christmas Child to help create a special experience for your family during the month of October. We will gather on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, on the EBC campus to provide children and families with an interactive event that demonstrates what happens to the OCC shoe boxes they have packed and how the lives of the children who receive their gifts are impacted. A nursery will be provided for children ages 2 and under. There will be no other activities or small groups on campus that night.
