Missions Moment May 2020
As we whether the COVID-19 pandemic and our Church continues to worship virtually, our Laity, Sunday School classes, Men’s & Women’s committees and our Missions Committee have been actively and generously supporting our community focused Ministries. Here are some highlights:
Serenity Corner – In early April, the Missions Committee on behalf of our Church, made a $500 donation to the Board of Serenity to use as day-to-day needs emerge and grow. April also saw the formation of a food pantry in the gymnasium of the First Christian Church to collect eight specific food items (details on our website), used to create Hearten Bags that help feed more than 20 people experiencing homelessness in Terrell. Monetary and food donations to our Church Office are being provided weekly as they come in. When we reopen our Church, we will collect our 50 Lent Boxes with proceeds going to Serenity.
Burnett Early Childhood Development Center partnership – With Texas schools closed, needs have been minimal. We have been asked to start locating disinfectant sprays and wipes for the 21 teachers and classrooms when physical learning recommences. If you see any of these items, please buy or provide them and bring them to the Church Office.
Share Center of Terrell – Demand for food is skyrocketing as weekly counts of families needing aid approach 600 per week. Our Church has stepped up generously at all levels with monetary support. As unemployment rates soar (now 14.7%), so will demand monies for basic food items. The Texas National Guard is onsite to help volunteers safely and efficiently distribute food packages to drive thru clients.
Blessings to all who have stepped up in any way to keep Terrell strong!!
