Decatur, Alabama Trip Planned

STAYING AHEAD OF DISASTER

Saturday, October 5th, we made our trip to Decatur, AL to assemble disaster relief kits. We left at 7:30 am and worked until 1:00 pm.  There are never enough hands to assemble the relief supply kits that will be used in the next crisis/disaster.  Your participation was a great gift!

Please consider this ministry for you and/or your family.  Children 13 and older are welcomed!  Contact Lefty Barnett, jleftyb@gmail.com, for more information. Or complete the form below and submit!

UPCOMING EVENTS

Next Missions committee meeting will be Sunday, August 11th, 12:05 pm

BUY ONE, GIVE ONE

The Missions Committee would like your help in providing not only food, but toiletries: soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, feminine products, deodorants, combs, shampoo, detergent, etc. for the food pantry to distribute to those in need in our community.

We want to create an attitude of buy one and give one, All we ask is when you make a purchase for yourself or your family, you purchase that same item for someone else. A cart is in the narthex for your purchases. Thank you for your help in the Buy One, Give One project and general support of all the Outreach/Missions on behalf of the church.


… 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.'       Matthew 25:40

DEVOTIONAL MATERIAL NEEDED

We are looking for devotional materials, i.e. Upper Room, to put into our food pantry handouts. If you have anything that is appropriate, would you please bring it to the Food Pantry or leave it in the church office. We would like each of our families to have spiritual nourishment as well as physical nourishment.

Items needed in the Food Pantry are beef stew, canned fruit and canned potatoes.

Family Promise is making a tremendous difference across the nation! We are so honored to be a part of this great program offering care to homeless families with children, right here in Rutherford County.
