Blessing Bag Ministry

Blessing Bags 3rd Sundays

On the third Sundays of each month we will be making Blessing Bags for the homeless.

This youth led ministry needs lots of hands to make it successful – so come on by the small parish hall after the 10:30 service and help us assemble the bags!

We’ll make 50 bags each month. Half of those will be taken to the JPS Street Medicine Team. The rest are for YOU – our wonderful members to take!

What are they?

Blessing bags are full of necessities such as non-perishable food, hygeine items, etc. The idea is to keep several in your car and hand them to those in need on the streets. The problem of homelessness persists in our city, and these bags are a way to show God’s love to our neighbor.

How can I help?

Each bag costs about $3.75. So this ongoing ministry needs your donations! You can visit our Amazon Wish List online and order items. Or you can purchase items wherever you shop and drop them off at church. You can also donate money through our online giving page. And you can come and help on 3rd Sundays!
