BLESSING BOXES 
So far we have received $3,163.00 through our Blessing Box campaign.  Thank you for giving generously to spread God’s love to others. Your Blessing Box gifts provide weekend food for 40 children from Vincent Elementary. First Christian Church is one of the participants providing snacks for 36 different schools this year. God splashes blessings on us, soaking us with love undeserved.
 
Matthew 25:40 (NIV)
Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers & sisters of mine, you did for me.
 
Luke 22:1-22:46
The greatest among you should be like the youngest and the one who rules like the one who serves. - Luke 22:26
Be a willing servant. Make a nice dinner for your family or surprise your co-workers with something from a bakery.
Dear Lord, give me a servant's heart. Open my eyes to the needs of those around me and guide my actions so I will be of help to someone today.
