Christian Gomez – Out of the Box Worship Center is sponsoring a child through Compassion International. 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 Desk 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. We are excited to add yet another outreach ministry and help those in need and provide God’s word in Guatemala!


Change for a Dollar – These funds are to help transients, homeless, addicts, anyone who needs a little help. Recently, we were able to get a Subway card for a homeless 18 year old who was just released from jail. Also, we paid on a power bill for a pregnant, single mother with 2 small children. There are envelopes in the baskets that the ushers have marked, “Change for a $” for you to use to give to this fund.

People are needed to Serve are needed in all ministry areas at Out of the Box Worship Center. Check the Opportunities to Serve  page on the website.
