Sometimes we need to be reminded that it’s not all about us. It’s about us making sure folks who don’t know Jesus have an opportunity to learn about his love for us. And that’s what our Outreach committee is all about. And we’ve got several opportunities coming up where you can share in that mission.
The Jarrell Community Food Pantry and Clothes Closet are open the second and forth Sunday of each month from Noon until 2 PM. The pantry is located in the portable building on the north side of the church (at 404 1st Street). If you know of someone who could benefit from the pantry, please share this information and encourage them to participate.
In the 2+ years of the pantry’s operation, we have been the hands and feet of Christ for hundreds of families in need. If you are interested in helping out with the Pantry, contact Brenda Cooper at BCooper647@aol.com or Dianne Johns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Clothes Closet is located upstairs in the church thanks to the efforts of Elizabeth Fuller. If you have donations of quality used clothing, please contact Priscilla King at 512-818-1137.
Anyone with a need is invited to stop in on the same days as the food pantry.
Meals on Wheels
In addition to these projects, we are also working with the Williamson County Meals on Wheels to provide meals to those who, because of age or mobility issues, are unable to provide for themselves. Our route is every Monday. If you are interested in helping out with this ministry, you can contact Reba Dunnam at email@example.com.
On top of all that, we are in the beginning stages of establishing a ministry to the students of our high school and elementary school. The high school has a program known as “The Locker,” which provides school supplies, clothes, personal hygiene products and other necessities to students who need them. They are always looking for donations. Also, there are many students at all levels in need of mentors to provide a positive adult presence in their lives. If you are interested in any of these activities, you can contact pastor Tommy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Outreach committee met last Sunday to discuss ongoing and upcoming initiatives. We are excited about what the new year has in store. As always, we could use your help. Get involved and have fun in the process!
