If you have a few extra hours to donate during Thanksgiving week, we have a great opportunity for you to make a big impact in the lives of needy families from our community. Sign up after church this Sunday, Oct. 26 or talk to Damon Downs for the details.
Connect Christian Church is partnering with one of our missions, the Christian Help Center (CHC) in Batavia Ohio, and The Crossing for the “Turkey Crusade.” Last year, this effort handed out complete Thanksgiving meals — Turkey, Stuffing, Potatoes, Gravy, Corn, and Green Beans — to 150 needy families.
Our goal is to help out behind the scenes to get the meals ready then help serve during the service in which the meals are distributed.
- On Friday, Nov. 21, we need about 15 people to meet at the Christian Help Center in Batavia Ohio from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to help stuff Thanksgiving bags.
- Then, on Sunday, Nov. 23, at 3:30 p.m., we need around 18 people to help out with the kids ministry, the nursery and in security at Batavia High School during a community worship event.
Please stop by the table in the hallway after service if you are interested in signing up to get involved.
