2019 Year-End Gift Updates
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.
As a community, one church in four locations, we got to pack those meals in four large-scale packing events to be held in February and early March. Not only did you show up in a big way, but you brought your neighbors, co-workers, family, and friends to serve with you!
"Christ Community Church, Thank you for feeding kids, feeding spirits, and empowering communities! We are so grateful for your partnership!"
~Carrie & the whole FMSC team
