Help A Family In Need At Thanksgiving

Last year, the simple idea of helping local families in our church and community was born, and within two weeks, you, the church, had donated 74 Thanksgiving Bags!

Little did we know the impact these food bags would have on those receiving them. I was brought to tears after delivering two bags to senior citizens who could not drive. Their gratitude was so genuine and for the love of those who donated.

Below, you will find a letter from one of the families who was assisted through our church's Blessings for Children mission (names have been removed for privacy). They were blessed by your donations last year - little did you know its impact!

Thank you again for the love and kindness you continue to show our community and local families in need. You are appreciated and admired for what you do and how you give, not only during the holiday season but EVERY DAY.
 
In gratitude,
Tracey Jernigan-Bethea
