Krush Thanksgiving Food Drive: Oct 24 - Nov 10
Krush wants to use the Freedom series as a chance to use our freedom to be generous! We have partnered up with local school districts in hopes of providing them with a supply of food to go home with on Thanksgiving Break. As a church we will collect supplies and then The Krush will take those supplies and sort and bag them for our local school for distribution.
All food due back the weekend of Oct 31 - Nov 3.
On Nov 7 & 10, Krush students are packing bags to bring to local schools.
Bless a Child Nominations: Oct 1 - 31
Bless a Child is our Christmas program that helps families in financial need by providing Christmas gifts for their children, both from within our own church family and from outside organizations/schools that are connecting with our Campus Pastors.
For now, all we need from you is the NAMES of NEW HOPE families that you think may be in need of help. We will draft a very kind email to them next week to let them know that they were nominated to be recipients this year. (Note: we will never tell them who nominated them AND if they are upset that someone nominated them, we will smooth it over and apologize for asking the wrong person.)
Send your nominations to a member of the Pastoral Care team or email email@example.com
Baby Dedication On-Stage Ceremony: Nov 7 & 10
The on-stage portion of Baby Dedication will take place during each service at all campuses as long as there are families registered. This will happen during announcement time.
Veterans T-Shirt Sale: Nov 7 & 10
We are selling t-shirts at all campuses as long as supplies last. Proceeds will benefit the PTSD Foundation of America, Operation Finally Home, and The 1513 Fund. All organizations support veterans and their families.
Bless a Child Sponsorships: Nov 1 - 30
We will be asking our church family to “sponsor” a child by providing a $50 gift card to a store of their choosing. This year, we are giving gift cards to the parents early in December so that they can do their own shopping and gift selection. This gives them more dignity in accepting the gifts and helps them to make more personalized choices for their child(ren). Gift cards must be turned in by Dec. 1.
