New Ministry at First Christian Church!
First Christian Church is happy to introduce a new ministry to its congregation and the Traverse City community: Bed, Bath & Behold! B,B&B! is a give-away pantry containing donated products designed to make bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens more functional and comfortable for all of the home’s inhabitants. First Christian leaders are thrilled to offer a ministry that both serves the local community in a very tangible way and makes use of the valuable, spiritual gifts within the church of help, mercy, and administration. Our pastor, Matt Mabey, also provides the church with a solid connection to local markets in acquiring some of the products needed to stock the shelves of B,B&B! with quality goods. Our hope and prayer is that this ministry will connect our local families with our church as a way to meet their immediate needs and, in turn, revitalize our membership. B,B&B! is open to our shoppers every second and fourth Saturday morning - from 9:30 am to noon.
Did I hear you ask, “Can I help?” The answer, always, is ”YES!” First, the church is accepting donations on a regular basis. Please call the First Christian Church office if you have good quality items for the bedroom, bathroom, or kitchen to arrange a time for drop off of those items. Like-new children’s toys and books are also needed for the Behold! closet (we want our local children to be cared for, as well!). Please keep in mind the following advice from B,B&B! leaders regarding donated items: If it’s not in great condition, and you wouldn’t put it in your home as is, please don’t donate it!
Second, volunteers are regularly needed to work our B,B&B! shopping days to process donated items or assist shoppers. Please consider donating your time by clicking the link below and signing up for a position that fits into your personal schedule. Those who cannot donate their time are encouraged to pray for this ministry: for our church to successfully meet the needs of our community and for the volunteers who minister to them. Thank you, and may God bless you!
