I want to bring everyone up to date on a project we have been working on for a few months.
Through several emails, meetings and prayers, Briargate Elementary in the Ft. Bend Independent School District has accepted an offer that we made as a congregation to assist their fifth grade class. We will be providing small “zip string” packs filled with several personal hygiene items for them to use over the fall break. These packs will be presented to the class members on the morning of November 18th. We plan on having a “pot-luck” meal and activity to help fill the backpacks with the items on October 30th. If you would like to help we would love to see you there. In the meantime, if you want to help financially you can send donations to:
Community Christian Fellowship
P.O. Box 2244
League, TX 77574-2244
Or you can go to our website and donate through Pay Pal on the “donation” tab.Another member and I also attended a luncheon for an organization called “GPS” which stands for “Grandparents Support Groups”. This group’s goal is to be a support for grandparents who find themselves in the position of primary provider for their grandchildren. They did not ask for this responsibility, but out of love they have taken it on. Most of these children are special needs behaviorally. We are considering providing a place to start a new group for these Grandparents in the Ft. Bend County area. This is still in the discussion stages. We are asking for your prayers regarding both of these areas that God has opened up for us.
In the book of John, Jesus told His disciples that the crops are “ripe for harvest” but the workers are few. If you do want to be involved in what we are doing for the community, you are always welcome at our services, and we would love to have you. There is something real and true about helping others—if your heart is being moved to do so…come join us.
Until next time,
