Blessing Bags are Back!

Published On: September 1st, 2023

Our Blessing Bag Ministry will return again on Saturday, September 30th and we need your help! If you’re new to our church, a Blessing Bag is a one-gallon plastic bag filled with travel-sized toiletries and non-perishable food items that can be given out to the homeless or to those in shelters to meet their immediate needs.

From now until Wednesday, September 27th, we will be collecting your donated supplies for the Blessing Bags. Then on September 30th, we will gather on Community Missions Saturday and assemble the bags along with an encouragement card, which will then be donated or passed out in the community.

What can you do to help? Between now and September 27th, you can shop for INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED FOOD ITEMS and TRAVEL-SIZED TOILETRIES. Once you have purchased your supplies, you can drop them off at the church. There will be a trunk labeled BLESSING BAGS in Globe Hall. We hope to collect enough supplies to create 75 Blessing Bags. Our congregation is always so generous, and we are looking forward to helping our congregation act in a spirit of giving and kindness through this service project. Thank you so much!
