During the summer months the Love in a Bag Ministry makes 200 or more lunches each week. That's 200 children that might not otherwise get a lunch that day!
This loving ministry offers bagged lunches to children in our Connections Community throughout the summer months. The bags are prepared on Sundays and delivered to various communities in the Connections neighborhood at fellowship events on Monday evenings.
There are opportunities to serve in this ministry by:
- Donating items for the lunches (see the list below, and donation baskets can be found in the Welcome Centers at both campuses),
- Helping to assemble lunches at our Northlake campus,
- Transporting lunches to our Connections campus, and
- Distributing lunches in the community through picnic-style gatherings.
If you’d like to donate items, we can use (Single Serve Portions) of:
Pop-top cans or pouches of tuna or chicken
Chips, goldfish or cheezits
Fruit cups, applesauce, jello or pudding cups
Teddy grahams or cookies
Judi Gerber coordinates food donations and the assembly of lunches.
Lisa Hawkins coordinates the transport and distribution of lunches.
