SERVE

Service forms disciples who are sensitive to the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of others and who step out of their comfort zone to meet them.  Service encourages us to put the needs of the community ahead of our own.

 
 
 

40 Days - 40 Gifts

Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover them, and not to hide yourself from your own kin? - Isaiah 58:7

Join the Serve Committee this Lenten Season by participating in the Hands on Mission (HOM) "40 Days-40 Gifts".  This is an opportunity to give to those in need.  Visit the display table in the Lobby on Sunday for more information.  On March 3rd, stop by the display and pick up a bag and list of items to collect and on Palm Sunday, April 14th, return your bag.  All items collected will be dispersed to the various service agencies such as The Food Basket, Brazosport Cares, The Gathering Place, Carpenter's Hands, Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army, Society of St. Stephen, Texas Port Ministry, and the Pregnancy Help Center.

 

The Food Basket (Interfaith Foodbank)

The Food Basket was founded in 2002 to meet the growing demand among families for supplemental food in the communities of Richwood, Clute and Lake Jackson.
We strive to make a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors whom we joyfully serve, bringing health and happiness through the efforts of our community of caring volunteers.


The Food Basket is open Tuesday & Saturday from 8-10am to serve individuals and families. Donations can be accepted during this time as well or at other times by appointment. For more information about the Food Basket, volunteer opportunities and more, visit their website at www.interfaithfoodbank.com.
