Holiday Caring

Easter and Christmas Baskets

The weeks leading up to Easter and Christmas, our committee shops for items and gathers greeting cards from the congregation to fill the 20 to 30 baskets for our homebound members. The committee delivers the baskets and spends time visiting with each homebound member. This ministry began over 7 years ago and is a true blessing to those who receive the baskets.

Thanksgiving Boxes

Thrivent Dollars are used to purchase Thanksgiving food items to fill boxes delivery. A Thanksgiving card for each recipient. In 2022 a total of 10 Thanksgiving boxes of food were packed and delivered providing food to 22 children and adults in need of food assistance.
