Super 2nd Saturday

1 Peter 4:10 - "Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms."

Super 2nd Saturday ~ Canning Hunger and Coat Drive!

If you ask Christians what they believe the number one job of the church is, they would say "to save souls." If you ask those outside the church...They say our job is to feed the hungry and care for the poor.

Canning Hunger's vision is to merge those goals by meeting the physical needs of those around you WHILE intentionally building relationships with your neighbors. 

On October 28 & 29 and November 3 & 4, you will be able to pick up a packet of everything you need to help fight hunger in your community. 

Here's what we are doing

STEP 1: PRAY FOR YOUR NEIGHBORS!
Notice your neighbors and pray for your neighborhood. Regular prayer walk around your neighborhood are a great way to start!

STEP 2: LET PEOPLE KNOW YOU'RE COMING
During the weeks of October 29 through November 10 drop off bags and flyers at homes near you. Be sure you've filled in the date and time of your planned visit and signed the flyer. We encourage you to also leave your address and a short, friendly note. 

STEP 3: COLLECT BAGS ON 2ND SATURDAY, NOV 11 & 12
Take a wagon or your car around during the time range you specified and pick up the bags. Chat and get to know your neighbors. Try to learn something about them. Offer to get their email address to update them on how much food you collected. Idea: Have some church invites with you in case an opportunity arises.

STEP 4: TAKE NOTES
As you leave houses, take quick notes on things you can pray about for your neighbors.

STEP 5: FOLLOW UP WITH RESULTS
If you neighbors requested, send them an email with how much you collect. Add a personal note like, "I've been praying for your new job" or "Hope your son's baseball game went well!"

STEP 6: BRING YOUR COLLECTION TO CHURCH
On the weekend of November 19 & 19, bring all of the items you collected to church, where local pantries will be present to receive the distributed items. If you are unable to bring items on November 18 & 19, please take them directly to one of the food banks or shelter listed on our website: ccclife.org/canninghunger
