OUTREACH PROGRAMS

Operation Christmas Child

DC3, formerly CMCC served as an Operation Christmas Child regional collection center for Mississauga until 2014. Since DC3's early days Operation Christmas Child or OCC has been apart of our outreach initiative and we are proud to have serve in this capacity.  THIS YEAR WE TOOK A BREAK FROM THAT ROLE BUT WE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT OCC.  If you'd like to learn more about OCC you can visit their website.

There are many ways you can be involved in this project.  You can be a donor by packing a shoe box or you can organize a support Operation Christmas Child in your offices by telling other people about it and making it easy for them to participate as a donor by giving them the boxes and brochure.  You can volunteer in the processing site here in Mississauga or even here at DC3 during the National Collection Week.  

THE OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOE BOX CAMPAIGN IS NOW ON UNTIL NOV. 22, 2015!  

Additionally, if you are reading this and you attend another church, below are important information if you want to get your church involved.

HOW TO GET THE SHOEBOXES AND OTHER SUPPLIES?

Compassion Site

98 kids around the world are being sponsored by a DC3 family or partner through Compassion.  

 

DC3 recently started a partnership with Compassion Canada and during our Compassion weekends in our Meadowvale and Westway Campus have reached a total of 98 kids sponsred by a DC3 family or partner [a partner is a regular attender of our worship services and someone who considers DC3 as their home church.]

We are excited in making this partnership as a dream come through.  37 of the kids sponsored are from the Dominican Republic and it could one day lead to our church family being able to send a mission team to that country to visit our sponsored children and help the churches doing the work there for Compassion.

To know more about the ministry of Compassion and how to participate with our partnership with them or how to connect your own local church to this great ministry, visit the Compassion Canada website- http://www.compassionsunday.ca/
