CELEBRATE MESSIAH’S BIRTHDAY!
Starting making plans now on how you can celebrate Church of the Messiah’s 200th birthday. Here are three gifts to choose from to help celebrate a really BIG birthday:
200 VOLUNTEER HOURS FOR HABITAT
Our local Habitat for Humanity organization is building a home for a family in need. We are organizing 4 specific days where Church of the Messiah will be the volunteers in building this home. Sept, 15, 17, 18, and 22. Sign up on the board by the Welcome Center. 200 hours for 200 years.
2,000 POUNDS OF FOOD FOR WESTERVILLE
Our local resource ministry called WARM helps so many people in need on a daily basis. Our goal is to collect 2,000 pounds of food for WARM. You can drop off your donations anytime between now and September 16th at the church. Place the items in the 200th birthday crate located in the hallway.
20,000 POUNDS OF RICE AND BEANS
Join us in offering humanitarian assistance to our friends in Cuba by donating money to buy 20,000 pounds of rice and beans. Monetary donations can be placed in the offering plate and marked “Cuba food.”
