THANKSGIVING MEAL OUTREACH – Here’s Some NEW WAYS to CONNECT with Families!
- Contact Paul Raz to connect with a local Mariemont School family. You can purchase groceries for their meal and deliver them personally at a mutually convenient time. You will have time to pray with the family and invite them to come on Sunday or go to the Tree Lighting on December 10th or attend one of our Christmas Eve services (4:30, 5:30, 6:30) at the Chapel.
- Don’t live close to Mariemont? Then ask the Lord to direct you to a family in need in your community. You can purchase groceries and bless them with a meal, prayer and and invitation to MCC and the Christmas events, if practical.
- Invite a family or individual to share your Thanksgiving meal. Many people spend the holiday alone and they would be blessed by an invitation to your Thanksgiving meal. You can also invite your guest to join you on Sunday or to attend any of our Christmas events.
Why the Change?For the past several years we have received donations from our congregation, and purchased Thanksgiving boxes from Kroger for distribution to families. Over the past two years, we have found that we were unable to connect with the families. Many did not answer their phones or were away from home on delivery day. This reduced the opportunity of personal connection and ministry. So for this year, we are recommending that each MCC family consider one of the options above.
Thanks for living and loving like Jesus!
