Serve our Community!
SPONSOR A FAMILY THIS SUNDAY
The holidays are just around the corner and there’s no better way to love and serve those in our community than through our Legacy Boxes! Stop by the Welcome Center on Sunday mornings between now and December 2nd to sign out a family you’d like to bless with a Legacy Box full of food, toiletries, winter clothing, bedding and/or firewood.
Join forces with your Group, your neighbors, even your students to fill the needs of a family in our community this holiday season.
The applications were given out in partnership GRACE when they registered the same families for their Thanksgiving and Christmas programs. Sponsor forms are available in the lobby near the Welcome Center and they need to be SIGNED OUT so we know which families still need sponsors and to help sponsors ask questions about their families. Instructions are included with the form that you can sign out.
Please be in prayer for these families throughout this month—If you sponsor a family, pray for their specific prayer request noted at the bottom of the application and also pray that God would provide for them in their time of need, that their hearts would be awakened to the Gospel, and that we are able to show God’s love to them when we deliver the boxes on December 9th.
If you sponsor a family, please fill the specific box that is highlighted in PINK. You can do this with your family, with your Group, or by yourself.
We are collecting the items highlighted in BLUE. You can bring these items to the Welcome Center each Sunday through December 9th. Items include pantry food items, toiletry items, and all sizes of diapers and baby wipes (full list is located on the donation list at the Welcome Center).
If there is another box checked off on the list that is not highlighted, and you are able to get those items for the family, you are welcome to do so. Please do not feel obligated.
We need donations of the following items to pack food bags for our Legacy Box families. Please bring the following items to church each Sunday:
Low Sugar Cereal
Low Sugar Granola Bars
Low Sodium Soups/Stews
Boxes of pasta (spaghetti noodles, elbow noodles, make and cheese)
Holiday Favorites (cranberry sauce, stuffing, yams, cream of mushroom soup, fried onions, etc.)
Single serve fruit cups
Canned veggies (veggie cups)
Canned Pasta Sauce (preferably meat sauce but marinara is fine too)
Food stamps don't always cover toiletries and cleaning supplies and these items are needed and helpful for families. Please bring the following items to church each Sunday:
Soap (bar soap, hand soap)
General House cleaning spray
Babies have a lot of needs that can sometimes be overwhelming. We put together New Moms Boxes for families that are not just used at Christmas, but throughout the year. Please consider bringing the following items to church each Sunday:
Diapers (all sizes through Pull ups)
Baby Wipes (for sensitive skin)
Baby blankets (new or gently used)
Baby clothes (new or gently used)
