COATS FOR KIDS

During the month of November, we are conducting our annual Coat Drive. These winter clothing items will go to the over 500 students in the St. Johns County School District in grades K-12 who are classified as Homeless. They need winter coats, sweatshirts, jackets or lightweight coats, new socks, and new underwear. Donated coats may be new or used in good stain free condition.

THANK OFFERING | NOVEMBER 24

Each November we collect a special offering called the “Thank Offering”. It’s a time for you and your family to say thank you to God for all the ways He has blessed you in this past year. This offering helps support needs in our community around Thanksgiving and Christmas, along with donations to missions above our yearly budget. Please pray about how you will participate in this offering on Nov. 24th.
