Mission Action Updates

Outreach is alive and well at First Christian Church, Vallejo.

Here are some  recent ministry activities for which we can rejoice and be thankful.

On November 19, the church presented a Thanksgiving meals check in the amount of $475 to Ministers Benjamin and Mary Ann at Faith Food Fridays in Vallejo. This offering is the result of our gifts in lieu of our usual Thanksgiving luncheon.  The day the gift was made was a food distribution day and the line of clients snaked for a block up Solano Avenue. We have participated in providing a nourishing meal for local families. Thank you!!

On November 23, our 14 School Kits (compiled during our special Halloween worship service) arrived at Church World Service in Elkhart, IN. These kits will assist children around the world with needed supplies they cannot ordinarily access. They will know someone cares and celebrates the opportunity to be in school. 

Also, believe it or not, it is that time of year again! We will be accepting donations of new/unused socks and underwear for women, children and men. This is a great need, especially this time of year. We will have a box to collect donations in the sanctuary on Sunday mornings. They will be given to The Sparrow Project for distribution to people in need.

And don’t forget that our virtual Global Holiday Faire continues through the end of the year, and the Great Common Ground Bakeoff Dessert Auction was a huge success!
