Community Service Projects
We contribute to our community in a variety of ways. Every Thanksgiving we gather food items for an entire feast:juice and milk, rolls, turkey,pie and all the trimmings – even extra whipped cream! Dozens of “Blessing Baskets” are assembled by the Awana children who pray over the box and insert a greeting card. The boxes are then delivered to those in our church and Newport who need a helping hand.
Other activities include winter gloves and boots drive for the school across the street. We collect socks for the homeless, and food for local food pantries. This past year we hosted our first annual “Soup-er Bowl Sunday” with a fellowship luncheon and canned soup drive for Oaks of Righteousness. We are eager to help and try to host community service projects every quarter.
