Your Place in Ministry – December 18th

Bridge Builders would like to thank all of you who took time from your busy schedule to remember our homeless folks through your prayers, donations of clothing, home baked cookies, and financial help. What a blessing it is to be a part of a wonderful, loving church! We served sixty-five adults and a few children at the Church of the Reconciler. Your gifts to this ministry are very much appreciated.

LEISURE GROUP-Our 4th Tuesday is after Christmas this year!  We usually celebrate and enjoy Christmas by eating out.  On Tues., Dec. 27, we will ride the bus to Bright Star in Bessemer for a great meal and lots of socializing with our friends.  We will leave the back lot of the church at 10:45 am and will eat at 11:30.  The restaurant would appreciate the number attending, so if you have not signed the roster, please call Marie at 655-6911 or 835-9189.

The Clients of TEAM thank you! In the first ten months of 2016, approximately 372 families from Trussville and the surrounding communities have received assistance with food and/or clothing from the TEAM Ministry. One hundred (100) of these families have never received help from us before. During these ten months, TEAM:
Provided clothing 1,415 times
Provided food 1,272 times
Totaling 4,581 bags of nutrition, averaging 458 bags/month
The amount of food provided is based upon the number of persons in the household. Without your help, this ministry could not exist to lend a helping hand to our neighbors. Thank you.
