Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child 2023

National Collection Week: November 13-20, 2023

Drop off hours: Monday-Friday 3-6pm, Saturday 10am-4pm, Sunday 12-4pm

Location: At the Collection Truck in the PCC parking lot:
Pacific Coast Church, 2651 Calle Frontera, San Clemente, CA 92673.


Each year, we partner with Samaritan’s Purse to pack and donate shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child, a ministry that demonstrates God’s love to kids around the world. As gifts are distributed, local churches present the Gospel in a fun way designed for kids while family and friends listen. For many children, their shoebox gift is the first gift they have ever received. Along with their gift, children also receive The Greatest Gift, a colorful presentation of the Gospel in their own language. This often brings parents, siblings, and friends to accept Christ and become active members in the local church.
