We are passionate about reaching lost people whether they are next door or on the other side of the world. This ministry through Samaritan’s Purse is a wonderful way for those of us born into so much to joyfully give those who were born into very different circumstances. But the best part of this gift is NOT THE STUFF WE BUY and put in the shoeboxes, it is avenue it provides for THE GOSPEL STORY TO BE TOLD!

How WE do OCC…
At Hill Point, we enjoy taking on this annual challenge every year TOGETHER! This means a PACKING PARTY!! Throughout the year, we COLLECT various items as one big family, tracking our progress and storing it until November, when we pull it all out! We PRAY over what the Lord has provided throughout the year, ask Him to multiply it for His use, PACK until it is all gone and then PRAY AGAIN, asking Him to use our small contribution to change lives. That’s it!
It’s easy! Simply begin to collect some of the items below. We have already organized the ideas to coincide with seasonal sales and have even listed some great places that we’ve found good deals on those items. If you have some ideas of your own that’s totally fine too. We have a collection box that you can put your items in whenever you’d like. We will track/count what we have so we can keep everyone updated on when we have received plenty of one item and are low on others.
