Christmas is Love in Action

OVCN is a very generous church! We love to give! At Christmas we have several opportunities to bless children here at home and far away. Check out the opportunities below and see how you can help this Christmas season.

Stuff a Stocking for Our Single Mom’s Kids

  1. Pick up a card with the kid’s name/age on it at the table in the amphitheater on Sunday, October 15.
  2. No need to purchase a Christmas stocking; we had them donated and they are all hand-made
  3. We will stuff the stockings; you just need to bring the items in a bag to the church office M-Thur (9-4) or Fri (9-noon) or to the Welcome Center (put in the basket) with the child’s card firmly attached to the bag by Sunday, November 12th
  4. The contents of the stocking should not exceed $25.00 (you can put in gift cards, candy, little toys, etc. appropriate for the age of the child)

Call the office at 520-297-8297 or email Mary at if you have any questions

Thank you for helping out a child who otherwise may not have gifts for Christmas!
