MISSION COMMISSION == FOOD BASKET MINISTRY “A generous person will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor.” Proverbs 22:9

The Mission Commission of Christ Church is sponsoring an Easter Food Basket ministry for 30 families that attend Piedmont Elementary. These baskets will contain all the items to prepare a nice Easter meal. We will also include a children’s book on the story of Easter and a brochure of our church services and activities.

We would like our Church to embrace this ministry by taking an egg off the display in the narthex and purchasing food items or making a monetary donation.

The display for this project will be in the narthex March 31, with a final drop-off day of April 7th .

Thank you for supporting this vital ministry of feeding our neighbors!
