I Am Thankful For Being A Part Of A Sharing, Caring & Giving Church

Thanksgiving is a time of the year we thing of sharing and giving to others.  But sharing, giving, and caring is something we should do year round, and is what the Church I attend does.  So I Am Thankful For Being A Part Of A Sharing, Caring & Giving Church.

I have attend the Ward Street Church of Christ in Wallingford, CT., since 1984, and in those 33+ years the Ward Street Church of Christ has looked for ways to assist our members and community year round.  For example last night several of us got together to put Thanksgiving Baskets together for needy families in our Church and community.  The baskets you see in the picture to the right, have all the fixings the families who will receive them will need for a Thanksgiving Dinner.  The only thing missing are the turkeys and pies which we will pick up tomorrow night, and deliver to families.

This is something The Ward Street Church of Christ has done for a few years now, and something we will continue to do in coming years.  Shopping for the fixings for the Turkey baskets, putting them together, and then delivering them is a family event at our Church.  Adults and children all get together to do this, and it teaches our young children what we are about.

I Am Thankful For Being A Part Of A Sharing, Caring & Giving Church, and feel very blessed for being part of the work there.

Good morning, George... I have no doubt that your presence/participation at the Ward Street Church of Christ is a critical component of it being such a caring and compassionate place.

There is often a strong sense of community that dwells in our churches that wouldn't be easy to replace.

George, sharing and giving is more rewarding than receiving, you and your church definitely know a thing or two about that!

Good evening George Souto, many Churches do a lot for our communities without any big announcements, thank you for sharing this post. I'm not surprised you're right in the midst.

33 years... that's a long time. It sounds like you've made lots of memories and lots of impact in your community. I LOVE hearing about churches that are "living the Gospel"; that's what people see. So many churches get program focuses and internally focused and miss the mission of the church which is to be outreach focused.
