Season of Giving

As we approach the holiday season, here are a few ways our church reaches out to our community and the world! Consider getting involved and contributing to our Season of Giving.

Hidden Creek Ministry

Join us in bringing Christmas joy to the families of the Hidden Creek community this year! Sign up to sponsor a family right here in our community at the Season of Giving table in our Downtown Simpsonville Campus lobby from 10/30/2022 – 11/27/2022 or email Lisa Smith at [email protected] to sign up.

This ministry also runs a year-round clothing closet that needs volunteers to help sort and maintain the closet.

Operation Christmas Child

It’s time for Operation Christmas Child!

OCC Shoebox Building Event
October 22, 2022 | 9:00am until done
North Auditorium | Downtown Simpsonville Campus

Come to the North Auditorium and help us fold some OCC shoeboxes for our church family to pick up, take home, and fill up. This is a great family project! We will begin building boxes at 9:00 and keep building until we’re done!

OCC Shoebox Packing Party
November 5, 2022 | 9:00am until done
North Auditorium | Downtown Simpsonville Campus

This is our annual Operation Christmas Child Box Packing Party. Participants only need to show up– boxes and all materials needed to pack them are provided! We have enough items to pack 1,000 boxes! It’s a very easy way to participate in outreach and ministry since the boxes are shipped all across the world to children in need and they are given a chance to hear the Good News!

Prisoner Packets
