Operation Christmas Child
First Baptist Church of Jamestown is one of the leading collection spots in the Fentress County area. We work all year on items to place in the shoe boxes that are sent around the world at Chirstmas time every year. We are always collecting the following items: old calendars, old washed mediciene bottles, pillow cases for dresses, and sheets for bags and dresses, snack and sandwich bags. Each month we have specific items we would like to collect. Each November, neighboring churches, local business, and volunteers come together to pack over 5,000 boxes to send across the world. If you would like to make a donation or create a box individually, you are welcome to drop it off at First Baptist Church during Operation Christmas Child Collection Week.
It is FINALLY here!!!! OCC Collection week starts today!!! We will be here collecting shoeboxes until 6:00 pm every day this week! Everyone should come by and witness this wonderful process!
