Simple Opportunity to Serve: Thanksgiving Baskets!

…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

I Thessalonians 5:18

In 2013, CCC members and friends donated contents for over 1,000 baskets in a surge of hilarious generosity

Followers of Jesus are to give thanks.

Christians have, by the grace of God, received abundant blessings.  These include forgiveness of sins, abundance of life today and for eternity, and even the inconceivable promise of glorification. In response to our Heavenly Father’s great love, it is only natural to give thanks.  Just as God’s love has been abundantly poured out onto us, we seek to extend His love to others.

How can our thanksgiving have an impact?

You can take part in Christ Community Chapel’s Thanksgiving Basket Initiative. This year, CCC members and friends have a goal to donate contents for 1,100 baskets (really, they are more like large bins!) in providing a full Thanksgiving feast for neighbors in need. Each basket contains enough food for 10 to 12 people.  These baskets are a visible, tangible, edible reminder of God’s love for the recipients.

Fantastic! What do I do?

Here are some options:

PRAY – Pray for the families who will be receiving these baskets of food and the ministries who will be delivering them.

GIVE – Make a Thanksgiving Basket for 10 to 12 people as part of CCC’s yearly Thanksgiving Basket Initiative. For more information, contact Judi Dalton at: .

GO – Help with the collection and organization of the Thanksgiving Baskets on Monday, November 24th from 3 PM to 7 PM. For more details, contact Judi Dalton at: .
