Where does this happen in 2015?

Christ Community Chapel ministry partner Urban Vision (UV) is hosting a He Lives Easter Party, where we hope many children come for a celebration and end up experiencing the love of Jesus. Last year, UV had 12,000 Easter eggs for kids at the party. While the candy and food at the He Lives Easter Party aren’t the main priority, they do help attract kids who might not otherwise come.  And, you can help with this opportunity for kids to be drawn to Jesus.

How can I help?

In any of several ways.

·      Easter Eggs – Stuff plastic Easter eggs with individually wrapped candy (with 2 pieces of tape on either side) and drop off a Urban Vision by March 20th. You’re also welcome to drop off just the plastic eggs or individually wrapped candy, and UV will assemble them for you.

Hard Boiled Eggs – Donate hard boiled eggs (not dyed) to Urban Vision on March 26th – UV needs around 20 dozen.

Volunteer at the Party – Be a helper in a group on March 27th 4 PM – 8 PM. The more helpers at the Party, the more kids get loved on!

Provide a Meal – Cook and provide the meal on March 27th or financially support the meal for 300+ kids.

Spread the Word – Whether you are able to help or not, please let others know who might be interested!

Giving Opportunity: Feeding Starving Children

…Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.”

From John 21:15

Feeding others is part of following Jesus.

Sometimes this is spiritual feeding – with the Gospel. Other times, it is physical feeding.

Feeding time is February 28, 2015.

Christ Community Chapel has a unique opportunity for you and your family to be the hands and feet of Jesus in feeding hungry children around the world.

What can I do?

At CCC’s The Block location on Saturday, February 28th, some 500 volunteers will package food for hungry children around the world. The event is called Quarter Back MobilePack. Between 9 AM and 5 PM, volunteers aim to pack 100,000 meals for Jesus’ hungry lambs. You can help the team reach its goal by making a monetary donation to supply food, and by praying for this effort. Christ Community Chapel is collaborating with Feed My Starving Children, a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God's children hungry in body and spirit.
