During the year Blaise is called to help other mission organizations by providing meal. Storehouse for Jesus needs meals for their medical clinic on Thursday night. Our assigned evening is March 5 for about 25 people. If you, a small group, or a Bible Fellowship class would be willing to prepare this meal, please contact Van for more info. We have been doing these meals for several years.
Also, Uplands Reach requests several meals throughout the summer months for the staff. This may be for 10-15 or 25-30. These dates will be given to us later. Again, if you would be willing to prepare and deliver one of these meals, just let Van know.
As you may or may not know Blaise adopted William R. Davie several years ago as part of our community outreach. In addition to sponsoring an individual teacher, we as a church host a beginning of the year breakfast or lunch and provide the entire staff with two meals during the year. In November,we prepared a crock-pot luncheon for them and in the spring we will prepare a potato bar with fixings for their enjoyment. Individuals and/or Bible Fellowship classes are needed to make this happen. Contact Van Fagan or Marcia Phillips to volunteer.
Our BIG SERVE DAYs are scheduled quarterly. There will be opportunities for you to participate in local mission projects or possibly an off campus site.
