Blessing Box

FCUMC has a Blessing Box! It is located on the upper parking lot on Hotel Road near the GriefShare sign. It is filled with food items, books and toiletries for anyone to take who has a need. Anyone can contribute something to the box as well. Place items in the designated box near Wesley Hall. Our Missions Committee has placed this box as a local ministry opportunity. We are asking for volunteers to help us maintain this effort. The box needs to be monitored to keep it filled which means at least 2-3 times a week someone must replenish it.
This could be accomplished by groups of people such as Sunday school classes, boy scout troops, youth, choir, The Journey and anyone who would like to see this little box and its ministry thrive. If twelve groups or individuals would be willing to take on this responsibility for a month at a time we could cover the year which means the responsibility won’t fall on one person. Contact the church office at (865) 689-5175 if this is something you would like to help with or if you have questions.
