Thanksgiving Food Drive

God says to serve the poor. So we do. 


We believe that helping those in need is a core part of who we are and who God wants us to be. So we do it in a big, big way at Thanksgiving. We’ve ordered 12,000 boxes this year and we’re expecting God to show up through your unprecedented generosity.


We’ll be giving out two kinds of boxes during weekends services on November 7-8 and 14-15. One box feeds a family of 10 locally and the other is for bulk food for South Africa. You’ll fill up your boxes and bring them back to your site the weekend of November 21-22 at a big ol’ party in the parking lot or nearby.


We give the local boxes to churches across the region so they can be a blessing to folks in need. We also send 3 shipping containers of food to our partners in South Africa: Grace Bible Church and Topsy Foundation.


All serving roles are currently filled!
