Christmas Gifts for Foster Children in Ripley County
As an update to this project, all 97 foster children from Ripley County have gift givers providing Christmas gifts this year! That means nearly $6000 has been committed to this project to extend the love of Jesus to kids who are in some unique situtations at Christmas! Thank you for your generous response to this opportunity. As a reminder, we need all gifts returned to the church building wrapped and tagged no later than Sunday, November 29.

Food Pantry Holiday Basket Additional Items
As an update to this project, $450 has been given toward the $700 goal.  Thank you to everyone who is helping meet this need in our community. Throughout the month of November, we have the opportunity to give toward the purchase of 600 cans of sweet potatoes and pumpkin for the Batesville Area Ministerial Association’s Food Pantry. The donation of these specific items will help make holiday dinners that are distributed at Thanksgiving and Christmas happier and more bountiful for our neighbors in need.  Special envelopes will be available in the chairs to give in person or you may desingate on your online giving or mailed offerings how you would like to contribute toward this $750 project.

Benevolence Ministry
