We want to bring joy, light, and service to the world. Whether it is across the globe, in our community, or right here at our church – we want to make a difference. Listed below are the various areas we are able to serve in our community with the help of your donations and financial support. If you would like to be more involved in serving locally, please contact MELISSA.
We are in continuous need of items and/or financial donations to assist in filling each Blessing Bag for the homeless and less fortunate. Each Blessing Bag contains one of each of the following items:
Granola bar, peanut butter crackers, small water bottle, tooth paste, tooth brush, socks, bar of soap, wash cloth, small hand sanitizer, razor, and deodorant.
If you would like to assist in the distribution of completed Blessing Bags they can be picked up on Sunday mornings.
Did you know that while plastic bags can be recycled, they require a different process that the City of Tallahassee does not provide, listing bags as “Not for Recycling?” Join us in the Church foyer on the third Saturday of each month at 1:00pm as we work to transform those plastic bags into portable sleeping mats for the homeless, helping the environment and the homeless at the same time! Did you know each mat can take as many as 800 plastic bags to complete?! Bag donations can be dropped off at the Academy M-F or at Church on Sunday mornings.
ECHO is a Christian faith-based social services non-profit working to reduce poverty by providing emergency resources and support services to people in need in the Big Bend. Established in 1981 as a centralized location to help the homeless and hungry, today ECHO reaches our community’s most vulnerable yet hard-working families and individuals who experience poverty and hardship.
