Thanksgiving Food Drive

This year we are doing a food drive with specific items being brought in every week. If you are coming to church this week, bring with you a canned corn, canned green bean, canned soup, or other canned veggie to support those in the community who cannot have a Thanksgiving this year! I attached a copy of the letter we wrote about this below this news entry for the rest of the month leading up until Thanksgiving.


As you can see below, you have the option also to adopt a family this year (providing an entire meal for a family in need). If you are interested in that, email us or sign up at the info table this week!


We are teaming up with Lighthouse Mission for this, so it's gonna be BIG! Thanks for your help!


"Arise Community Church will be collecting food to make baskets to provide Thanksgiving Dinner to needy families in this area. Your help is needed and will be greatly appreciated. We are setting up a schedule of foods to bring in order to make sure we will have the necessary items needed for a complete dinner. You can opt to bring the food in as scheduled below or you can adopt a family to help and provide a complete meal. Please help us get as many people to participate as you can…work, family, neighbors, clubs you may belong to…we are all one big community!
