UPDATE! Bag assembly has been moved to November 7th
This ministry reaches out to those living in Senior/Assisted living residences with spiritual cards of hope and encouragement, devotionals, prayer, visits and seasonal gifts. For Fall 2021 we are decorating 400 orange bags and for Christmas we will be making 400 Christmas stockings and decorating red bags which will be filled with the items listed below. If you are interested in donating any of these items they may be brought to the church office or placed in the Bags of Hope collection boxes as you enter church services. Financial donations may be made with a designation for Bags of Hope Ministry.
- Puzzle books (crosswords, sudoku, fill-ins) Value packs of 24, 32 and 40 books are available from PennyDell Puzzles
- 3 oz. lotion tubes
- Candy bars (Snickers, Kit Kats, Hershey chocolate, etc.) NO hard candy, please!
Gift for Hospitality?
On Tuesdays, we offer a 30-minute Bible study at 10:30 am at MorningStar in Arcadia. It is such a joy to study God’s Word with the residents and we are always looking for volunteers to “host” the residents as they arrive and leave the class.
