Here, There, Everywhere Offering

Many thanks to the many folks who gave to our “Here, There and Everywhere” offering. The numbers are still adding up as people who were away or not prepared to give last Sunday will give this week and next and on into December. Join them, won’t you? And lets grow our ministry impact forward here, there and everywhere!

Bless Our Community This Christmas

Booker T Washington Elementary & Wellington School

Many of their families face financial hardships, and rely on school meal programs to feed their children. We have offered to supply Christmas dinners to families who have been identified by their staff who would be blessed by such a gift. We have a set menu, and would ask you to purchase these food items for a specific family, costing approximately $30-35. Pledge your meal(s) today on a Connection Card. Contact Sue Cook at suec@faclex.com.

Common Good Christmas Store

Embrace Church offers after school programming for kids in North Lexington, helping with homework and mentoring. Through their Christmas Store, families are given the opportunity to purchase donated gifts at 80-90% off retail price. Wish lists are collected, and we will have the opportunity to fill some of those lists for these families, offering them a dignified experience to purchase gifts for their kids. Lists will be available today. Contact Sue Cook at suec@faclex.com with questions.
