WAYS TO SERVE
THANKSGIVING BOXES OF LOVE
This Thanksgiving, families all around our community would like to gather around a table with loved ones and celebrate Thanksgiving Dinner. For many, this will not be possible. For one reason or another, they find themselves in a difficult situation—short on money and short on food. At times like this, we have the opportunity to be the Church. Doors have been opened for us to partner with other local churches, public schools, and individuals to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our community. Our Goal is to feed 40 families this Thanksgiving. We are asking for your help to bless those in need this holiday by providing them with a full Thanksgiving meal.

BE RICH IN GIVING
This December 2018 we will have a special giving campaign to support our local schools with supplies and needs. Your gifts last year raised over $7,000 that went towards showing God’s love and serving in our local community! This year we look to do something even greater! Look for Be Rich in Giving updates online and during the Sunday morning service so you can partner together with us this year.

CITY MISSION DROP BOX
Donate all clothing, belts, blankets, hats, draperies, hand bags, paired shoes or sneakers, and towels in the red City Mission drop box on the side of the parking lot.
Marilyn's Ministry is a group that visits some of our home bound members on Tuesdays each week. Contact Carolyn Ingleson for more information.
HOPE OF LIFE BOTTLE DRIVE
Donate your cans and bottles to benefit starving children in Guatemala. As of August, the total raised in 2018 reached $14,800, and since its inception 7 years ago, over a million bottles have been redeemed for a total of over $114,800! This has made it possible to rescue more than 100 children from starvation and give them a new hope of life. Look for the blue Hope of Life bin on the side of our parking lot.
