Benevolence

 
Chair: Correnda Cantrell
Committee members: Bobbye Falkner and Lou Brown
 
One of our greatest responsibilities is to reach out to God's children that are in need.
Matthew 25:35, "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in"
 
 
Assistance - Priority Needs
The church strives to assist those with priority needs. From help with the purchase of medication to provision of food through the food bank, the Mission and Outreach Committee is here to help.
 
Angel Baskets
Our largest and most rewarding outreach program is providing Angel Baskets during Thanksgiving and Christmas. At Thanksgiving, the baskets provide meals to families that would otherwise not be able to provide food for Thanksgiving dinner. At Christmas, the baskets provide gifts for children and food for the family. This outreach ministry is our way of showing God's children that someone does care in the name of Jesus Christ.
 
Fundraisers
The Mission & Outreach account is funded by various fundraisers, in which our church and congregation so willingly participate. From picnic basket to desert auctions, funds are raised to support our outreach programs.
 
Anyone interested in helping with this committee, please contact any of the committee members. Your help and participation is welcomed and greatly needed.
