Operation Christmas Child

Hope Church is the Operation Christmas Child (OCC) regional collection center for the Mid-South again this year! We will be collecting shoe boxes from all over the Mid-South during the National Collection Week, November 13-20. We care about this organization and believe they are doing great things all over the world. This is a simple, easy way to get involved in global missions.

Thank you for your willingness to SERVE and ENGAGE in Global Outreach here at Hope! If you would like to serve during National Collection Week, sign up below.

You can also participate in our trip to Dallas to serve at the OCC processing center. Millions of shoe boxes are collected during National Collection Week, but before these precious gifts can bring hope and joy to a child around the world each one has to be carefully inspected and made ready for overseas shipment by volunteers like you! You can help prepare shoe boxes for delivery by volunteering along with Hope Church in Dallas, December 6-10, 2017.

Oasis Toy Store

Bring the joy of Christmas this year to our North Memphis neighbors. Through your generous gifts, our annual toy store empowers parents to provide new toys for their children for a fraction of the cost. The store also provides job training and employment in the process. Bring any new, unwrapped toys to Hope now through December 6 and drop them in the marked barrels across the campus. We also need volunteers to help setup, run and cleanup the store. For more information and volunteer opportunities, contact Terry Hoff. Store hours between December 1-12 will be Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00 am-4:00 pm.
