BLESSING BAGS and DISTRIBUTION
Throughout the year, we reach out to the community in various events and activities to make Christ's love known. We realize God meets us where we are, and then transforms us by His grace. As we reach others, we hope it becomes a seed planted as God seeks to reach all people.
One primary opportunities is collecting and creating blessing bags. Blessing Bags are bags filled with items that might bless the person who receives. More importantly, they are a way to begin a conversation with a person and provide a way to share kindness and compassion. We have created a core list of items that we want to begin collecting. We will use the bags when we visit, as a group, homeless shelters and nursing homes or hospitals. Take a look at the calendar for these events.

We have an annual Easter Egg hunt for the community complete with face painting, food, and bounce houses.
Late in the Spring we have a blessing of the bikes, from motorcycles to tricycles and all kinds in between! There is always food and lots of activity around the day as well.
