Mission of the Month: Thanksgiving/Christmas Baskets - Thanksgiving is coming soon, and the Missions Ministry Unit is planning to collect items for Thanksgiving Baskets for Community Child Care again this year.  We also plan to provide a few Christmas baskets for Lakeside Park Elementary School.  Our goal is to provide 25-30 baskets of food.  Community Child Care is a nonprofit childcare center for working parents whose income falls below a certain level.  Many parents cannot afford to provide a special Thanksgiving meal for their family without assistance.  The Mission Unit is providing the meat but needs help with the following items.  

 

·         Cornbread Mix

·         Canned or Jar Gravy

·         Green Beans

·         Canned Corn

 

·         Canned Sweet Potatoes

·         Cranberry Jelly

·         Pumpkin Pie Mix

·         Boxed Pie Crust

·         Stuffing Mix

Please place your food items in the collection box at the side entrance.   If you are not attending church in-person or unable to drop off items, please contact the church office or Eva Dye at 615-559-3860 to arrange a porch pick-up of items.  Donations are welcome as well, and volunteers can shop on your behalf!  The deadline for items is November 21.
