2019 Year-End Gift
Thank you for giving to Christ Community's 2019 year-end gift.
With your generous year-end giving, we have exceeded our original goal of paying for 750,000 Feed My Starving Children. With your partnership, we are now able to pay for 1,000,000 meals that will feed our most vulnerable neighbors: hungry children around the world.
We now as a community get to pack those meals in four large-scale packing events to be held this February and March. This is a great opportunity to invite your neighbors to serve with to meet this real need across the world.
How to Invite Your Neighbors to Serve with You!
First: Check out the packing schedule for your campus below. Decide on a few options when you can invite people to join you!
Second: Print this Invite Flyer or grab some invite cards from your local campus (available the weekend of January 18th & 19th).
Third: Ask your neighbors when they would like to join you.
Fourth: Visit this site and select your campus to serve with. The registration link will redirect you to the FMSC website to sign up groups for your preferred time slot!
Do my neighbors need to register themselves?
You can register your neighbors as a part of your group without any additional information. However, if they are registered with an email address, they will get reminder emails from Feed My Starving Children directly about their upcoming time slot and appropriate clothing to wear.
Can I reserve a block of time if I don't have people committed yet?
In order to reach 1,000,000 meals, it is crucial that every spot has a person in it. We ask each person to only sign up groups that have committed people. You can always go in and modify your group size as many times as you need to.
What is the age requirement?
Anyone 5 years and older can pack meals accompanied by an adult!
