Don’t Come to Church Empty Handed – Here are the people and places we are going to bless right now:
Supplies for CCMS – we are collecting school supplies to be donated to Carroll County Middle School. You can bring supplies to OOTBWC and place them on the table in the Lobby. Suggested items are: glue sticks, notebooks, highlighters, pencils, loose leaf paper, 3 ring binders, Kleenex, and bar soap and snack items. Juice boxes/pouches are needed.
Snack Items for Teachers – We would also like to bless the teachers and ask you to bring in non-perishable food items for snacks.
Books – bring in used paperback books for the Prison. The inmates read mostly romance novels because that is what is typically donated. Bring in other meaningful books and we will deliver them to the Prison.
Food – bring in non-perishable food. We have people that sometimes have an immediate need for some food and we need to have some on hand to meet those needs.
Christian Gomez – Out of the Box Worship Center is sponsoring a child through CompassionInternational. It takes $38.00 a month to provide needs such as food, medical care, schooling, and most importantly providing God’s Word! A box is located at the Information Deak in the lobby with a picture of our child! We can write and send letters to him! We welcome you to drop loose change, a dollar, or whatever amount you would like to to help us meet our monthly goal of $38.00. If you have any questions please see Leigh Anne Smith or Ronnie G Collins.
Community Outreach and Missions Volunteers Needed – If you are interested in serving to help coordinate outreach and missions activities in our community, please contact Brenda Harmon at firstname.lastname@example.org . There will be a meeting on Tuesday, 1/26 at 6:30pm for anyone interested in being part of our Outreach and Missions Volunteers.
Thursday, February 4th, we will be serving at our local CCIS for Duty Free Lunch. We will relieve the teachers so they can enjoy a lunch away from their work. We need to be there from 10:30am to 1:30pm. If you can serve the whole time or part of the time, let Pastor Ronnie know.
