THANKSGIVING FOOD BASKETS
This will be the eighth year that we as the family at Thanksgiving come together and provide Thanksgiving meals for families in our community. We will begin “gathering” the food for the baskets the weekend of October 27 & 28. Look for our table in the lobby each weekend in November prior to Thanksgiving. If you would like to help with this outreach, or have any questions please email Rhonda Rupert.
BELLEVUE FOOD PANTRY: Ongoing
Thanksgiving partners with the Bellevue Food Pantry to ensure local families have the resources needed to thrive. We have shopping bags designated for the food pantry that we invite our congregation to fill and return to the church on a regular basis. There is a core of volunteers who help to transport and sort the food for the pantry. For more information, please contact the church office.
We believe that part of our call as a church is to share our resources with other organizations throughout the community, nation and world. It is for this reason that we annually give away over 15% of our offerings to other ministries. Below is a list of a few of the ministries that we support along with links to their websites so that you can learn more about them and consider ways that God may be calling you to support their ministry through prayer, volunteering or a financial gift.
