As many of you know, I have spent the past 6 years fundraising and fund'racing' for The Wheeler Mission Ministries. While I still support and love what they do for our community, I have recently been inspired to take my fundraising efforts closer to home, my home church. Each year Emmanuel's Small Group, Be The Change, raises money for families in need over the Holidays. Their goal is to raise enough money to purchase 600 boxes of food to share with families who rely on school provided meals during Christmas break. In addition to this effort, Emmanuel helps our community near, and others far in many ways.....Local Community Outreach, Student Programs, Middle School Retreats, Mom's day out, Dad's Day out, etc. Their giving, generosity, and sharing of the love of Christ extends globally also; Emmanuel partners with mission organizations in Africa, Colombia, Haiti and Nicaragua. So, this year I have been drawn down a slightly different path and my efforts and hopes are to help Be The Change reach their goal of 600 boxes of food for families in need this Holiday Season. I first hand know what it is like to be one of those children, from one of those families.....in need. Please help support me and my church this holiday season by going online and donating to my fundraiser for Emmanuel Church of Greenwood. This church has been my home now for an amazing few years and I have seen a lot of amazing things done through their giving as well as personally in my heart........and still growing!
Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.
Let's remember this Holiday Season, The GREATEST gift.......God's one and only son, and OUR opportunity to bless someone else.
