Simple Opportunity to Serve: Baskets of Love!

The very spring of our actions is the love of Christ. ...His purpose in dying for them is that their lives should now be no longer lived for themselves but for Him Who died and rose again for them.

From: 2 Corinthians, Chapter 5 (Phillips)

The love of Christ is Love in Action.

The Son of God loved us sinners enough to die for our sake. That powerful love fills and transforms the hearts of those who belong to Jesus Christ.

How does Christ’s love drive action?

One example is how God’s people at Christ Community Chapel literally wait in line for the chance to provide for neighbors in need. CCC’s Thanksgiving Baskets drive is in full swing, with a goal for church members and friends to donate 1,100 baskets of food for the less fortunate in the Akron area. 

Most folks are pressed for time, and do not enjoy waiting in line, even for a good cause. However, the people of God joyfully wait for the chance to sign up for a Thanksgiving Basket, to fill it with enough food to feed 10 to 12 people, and to drop it off at Christ Community Chapel’s Hudson campus for distribution to those in need.  These baskets are a visible sign of God’s love overflowing from the hearts of His people to others.

How do I get in the flow?

Consider these possibilities:

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 6 PM at the CCC Hudson campus. Other campuses have different schedules. For more details, contact Judi Dalton at: .
