Mission Week of Service is designed to spur us on to adorn the gospel through practical acts of love and good works to our neighbors & community.


Week-Long Events

Sunday Morning Food Drive

Did you know that some of the cheapest items for you to buy at the grocery store are some of the most expensive & hardest items for Mission Food Pantry to find? As part of the Week of Service, we are asking every household in our church to consider adding one or more of these items to your grocery list each time you shop to help us reduce our operating budget significantly. We are currently serving over 1000 families each month, so these costs add up quickly!  We will have collection bins set up in the lobby on Sunday mornings.

Items most needed:

  • Tomato Sauce
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Canned Soup
  • Pasta
  • Rice

Host a Food Drive

Will you consider hosting a food drive at your place of work, gym, neighborhood, or school? We will have collection boxes and instructions available in the lobby for you to pick up on Sunday mornings leading up to the Week of Service and display at your organization (just don’t forget to get their permission first!). Food can be collected any time during the year.

Stop by the table in the lobby or email tammi@mission-church.com for more information.
