Thanksgiving Baskets: The Grace of Giving

But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you—see that you also excel in this grace of giving.
2 Corinthians 8:7 NIV

The Gospel tells us how divine love is expressed in giving.

“For God so loved the world that He gave….”

And, in Luke chapter 7, Jesus explains that those of us who have been forgiven much, love much.  In turn, the love we have received from God expresses itself in giving to others.

Members and friends of Christ Community Chapel have stepped up to donate contents for over 1,000 Thanksgiving Baskets, so the less fortunate in our communities can know the grace of God.

Each basket contains enough food to feed 8 to 10 people

Some of the 155 baskets distributed through CCC's Highland Square campus

CCC Local Outreach ministry partner Urban Vision delivered 71 baskets to neighbors in need in the North Hill area of Akron

Thanks to all who organized, volunteered, donated, delivered and prayed for the CCC Thanksgiving Baskets drive this year!  More of our neighbors now know about the God Who loves and gives.

To Him alone be the glory!

If you would like to help with this great expression of love in action in the coming year, please contact Judi and Scott Dalton by e-mail at: .
