FOR OUR OCTOBER CALENDAR CLICK HERE
The Outreach Ministry Team is launching a major initiative to address a portion of the extreme hunger problem that faces our community. We will be providing a mobile food pantry to service families of Jonesboro Elementary School in Bessemer. Beginning Saturday, October 21, we will staff the site and hand out groceries designed to provide approximately 80 families with food meant to give them sustenance for about 30 days. In addition, we also will have the opportunity to provide spiritual support through prayer or counseling to the families we’ll be serving, if they are interested. We will be out there with this pantry on the third Saturday of each month.
We seek support from Connect Groups, classes and individuals for help in staffing the pantry and providing on-site spiritual support. Jay and Shelby Elmore are coordinating our volunteer staffing efforts on this project. If you want more information on getting involved, you can contact them. They will also be available in the foyer after worship on SUnday,
Save the date for our annual Trunk or Treat on Sunday, October 29, from 5 – 7PM. There will be several opportunities to serve and participate in this fun event! More details coming soon.
