This year's Operation Christmas Child shoebox collection has begun! Empty shoeboxes are available NOW in the lobby on Sunday mornings, and the deadline to return your filled boxes is Sunday, November 10th. Fresh Church's goal for 2019 is 125 boxes!
RevUp Ministries is inroducing a FRESH take on the angel tree! They will be taking your nominations for local family, friends, co-workers and neighbors who are in need of a blessing this Christmas. Think outside of the box and submit your nominations for those who are usually forgotten. Some examples may be:
- soldiers stationed in Columbia, away from home and family
- someone who has suffered a recent tragedy
- a nursing home resident who has no family
- single moms or dads
- anyone who may be overlooked by other agencies
Nominations can be made on Sunday mornings at RevUp's info table in the lobby, or click HERE to complete the nomination form online. Submit your nominations during the next two weeks, then up to 10 individuals or families will be selected from the nominations to go on the angel tree. Then you'll be able to select someone to "adopt" for the holidays!
Fresh Church participates several times a year with Keepin' it Real Ministries to feed and minister to the homeless at Finlay Park in downtown Columbia. 2019 dates are February 24, May 26, September 1, and December 1. More information on how you can serve will be available closer to these dates.
