Happening in Missions

“In the same way, though there are many of us, we are one body in Christ, and individually we belong to each other.” ~ Romans 12:5

Thanksgiving Food Drive

Nutritious, filling food is not always available or affordable in Mecklenburg County, especially for families living in food deserts. Around 15% of Mecklenburg residents live in a food desert, which is higher than the national average. Our food insecurity team is asking for your help to collect the following items: large-size diapers; canned meat, vegetables, and fruit; cake mix and icing; peanut butter; and canned or boxed dry pasta. Drop off donations in the lobby of the Parish Life Building. Please help us reach our goal of 3,000 pounds of food!

Thanksgiving Table Tithe

It’s that time of year again when we ask for $50 Harris Teeter gift cards for our neighbors at our partner schools and communities in Southside, Hidden Valley, and Grier Heights. Our goal is to collect 100 gift cards! Please drop off donations in the Missions office. Thank you for your generous support!

Merry Market

The Merry Market provides an empowering opportunity for parents to select and buy gifts for their children at discounted prices. This year, we are providing gifts for 400 children who are served by ourBRIDGE for Kids and Refugee Support Services. We cannot do it without your generous donations!

Pack the Van

You can make a tangible difference in the lives of children by donating items from this Amazon Wishlist, which we will then pack in a 15-passenger van to send to Faith Ministry, our partner in Reynosa, Mexico. Between November 27 and December 11, bring your family to pack the items you’re gifting and to say a prayer for the van.
