Monthly food donations:



Communion Sundays Food Donation

 

Communion is important because it’s a command to remember. Jesus wants us to remember every time we taste bread and wine (or juice), and even when we sit at the tables in our own homes, that He is the one who provides all we need. He gives us the physical food that we need to survive and the spiritual nourishment we need to keep taking our next steps with Him.

One of the definitions in part for communion is “The act or an instance of sharing…” As we come to share the bread and juice in remembrance of Christ, let us also share with our neighbors in need.

On 1st Sunday/Communion Sunday we place our nonperishable food donations in baskets at the front of the chapel or sanctuary.

(Other times you may still place them in the designated bins.)

 

Hebrews 13:16 – “And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.”

Proverbs 19:17 – “Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.”

Luke 3:11 – John replied, “If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry.”

CNU Snack Outreach

Many of us remember the stress of exam time when we were still in school. In fact, even though we may have been out of school for decades, we still have nightmares about forgetting to study for a test or to show up for an exam! For the students at CNU who are in the midst of spring exams, the snacks and beverages that local churches distribute on campus can give them a needed little boost during this anxious time. The students were so grateful and kept thanking us over and over . The peanut butter and jelly sandwiches reminded them of home.  Thank you from the Outreach Committee to everyone at Grace who provides these snacks and/or distributes them during exam times.  

Stay tuned!

Watch this space for more ways to be the heart and hands of Jesus in reaching out to others. If you are looking for ways to be more involved in Outreach, the Outreach Committee is looking for you! Please consider this a personal invitation to attend meetings to assist in planning – watch for meeting dates and times.
