Patriot Day Outreach
September 8, 2018
All DayCategory: Men's
By Congressional Resolution and Presidential signature, “Patriot Day” honors the victims of the 9/11 attack on our country in 2001 and is also recognized as a “National Day of Service and Remembrance.”
Each year, on or near 9/11, New Community Church remembers and serves the first responders who serve us so faithfully and bravely. We do so with the distribution of baskets of fresh baked goods provided by our church family and local stores to each of twenty (20) fire, police and EMT agencies in West St. Louis County. A letter of thanks and appreciation from Pastor Jerry for the dedicated service of these brave men and women will be included with each basket.
In addition, artwork honoring first responders will be provided for the children in the church to color and will be included with the deliveries. (They are always a hit with the first responders!)
The Women’s Ministry will be arranging for all the donated baked goods as well as preparation of the baskets. A call for the baked goods is being sent under a separate email. The baskets will be distributed on Saturday morning, September 8th by teams of men and women from the church, a process which takes no more than an hour to complete. It is a most fulfilling, yet humbling experience to interact with the first responder recipients.
Please sign up online or stop by the lobby table to sign up for preparing the baskets; providing baked goods and participating on a delivery team.
Come and take advantage of this opportunity to bring glory to God through outreach to our area’s first responders in commemoration of "Patriot Day."
