The heart of Christian Life is that our influence goes beyond the walls of our church. We are discovering new things each day as God leads us to becoming a community of people who don’t just “go to church,” but who will "Be" the church. Being the church is not a project or an event, it's a lifestyle.
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another" (NIV, John 13:34-35).
Christian Life has partnered with Foley Elementary School to offer the “Project Feed Foley Kids” program, focusing on assisting low-income families in the Foley community. We will be delivering non-perishable snacks and meals for the duration of the summer break. The children will be chosen by the counselors at Foley Elementary based on their level of need. Many of these children receive most or all of their weekly nutrition from school lunches during the year, so we are helping fill in the gaps during the summer when school breakfasts and lunches are not available.
Feed Foley happens in the months of June through August of each year.
Each year, most parents get their children ready for a new school year by providing them with the necessary school supplies. But some children don’t have that privilege. We have partnered with Foley Elementary School to offer the “Backpack Kids” program. Each grade has a corresponding supplies list and we, as a church, will buy the supplies and then place them in the backpacks. The counselors at the school will identify the children who are in the most need, then these children will receive backpacks full of the school supplies that are needed for their classes. We will be providing supplies for k-4th grade. The “Backpack Kids” program happens in August each year.
