November ’15 Mission Effort


November 3, 2015 by thebodychurchtx

November Mission Effort.
 The Mission Effort for The Body Church will center around a feeding 45 children from 35 families (some are siblings) Breakfast and Lunch for the Thanksgiving Holiday Season. The effort, entitled, Matthew 25:35, will combine group efforts to collect and raise money to purchase food to show the compassion and providence of Christ on
Sister Davis, of the Copper Grove Group, serves a volunteer tutor for the 45 students, and believes our effort will make a mighty statement for God to these needing families.
The estimated cost of the project is $450, which includes purchasing goods from a combination of Aldi and Costco. 
Boxes to families should include 1 Box of Cereal, 2 Boxes of Macaroni & Cheese, 5 Packets of Instant Oatmeal, 1 Jar of Peanut Butter, 1 Jar of Jelly, 1 Loaf of Bread, 1 Box of Crackers, 1 Can of Soup, 1 Can of Chili and 2 Cans of Tuna. 
These foods are key to support, as Kids may be home alone and need to prepare their breakfast and lunch without major cooking. The students, all recipients of the reduced lunch program, can eat breakfast and lunch at school, thus enabling families to keep grocery store spending low enough to complement their family budget.

1.  Collect or Purchase Listed Items Above.
2.  Contribute to Purchase of Listed Items
    a.  Check (payable to The Body Church TX)
3.  Assist with Shopping for Items Listed Above (contact Dr. Q.
4.  Assist with Transport and Delivery of Food Baskets

    Reblogged this on Dr. Q and commented:

    I am excited about the November Effort. This effort is sure to make a difference for the families in this group.

    To make the effort run smoothly, we need to sure up some logistics for our group and the overall effort. For collection, we have 2 group meetings before the Nov. 13th deadline issued, thus we want to make good use of the time. Group members can bring items to our home to be collected until all resources are brought together for packing and delivery.

    Items per family needed are: 1 Box of Cereal, 2 Boxes of Macaroni & Cheese, 5 Packets of Instant Oatmeal, 1 Jar of Peanut Butter, 1 Jar of Jelly, 1 Loaf of Bread, 1 Box of Crackers, 1 Can of Soup, 1 Can of Chili and 2 Cans of Tuna.

    In addition to the items, we are looking for members that are interested in helping with shopping, packing and delivery. If you are interested in participating in this portion of the effort, please notify me.

    Feel free to share the donation link with your friends and family members. ( )
