Community Investment Week!
This is a huge week at CIL to invest into our community through giving and volunteer hours.
Operation Christmas Child THIS WEEK!
You can share the love of Christ with children around the world through Operation Christmas Child. Pack a shoebox with Christmas gifts and drop it off November 13th – 20th (CIL is an official collection site). OCC adds a booklet with the gospel message and delivers the boxes around the world. In the hands of local churches, they become powerful tools for evangelism and discipleship.
If you want to volunteer, we still have time slots available for volunteers to receive gift boxes as they’re dropped off. Let us know if you can help.
Saturday, November 18 is our Thanksgiving Blessing! Our goal is to give away 185 fresh turkeys and all the ingredients for a family Thanksgiving meal for local families. Your gift of $25 will completely fund Thanksgiving dinner for someone who might be unable to provide that special meal without help. We currently have 82 sponsored. Will you take time to donate right now by clicking here, so we can fund all 185 meals.
The assembly team will gather on Friday evening, November 17 at 6:30pm to prepare the bags. Volunteer sign-in on Saturday morning is at 8:30, with the give-away beginning at 9a.m. in the parking lot at the Goodwill Store on New Shackle Island Road. If you want to volunteer for Friday night packing or Saturday morning distribution, contact Gala Johnson at 615-440-6127.
