MISSION FOR June ACBC and Prison

The outreach giving for June will be for supporting the Assistance Center of Bryan County. The ACBC is located at 1303 Waco Street and it is the central location for people who need emergency help here in the county. The ACBC includes: The American Red Cross, Durant Ministerial Alliance, Loaves and Fishes, Red River Special Olympics, and The Salvation Army. It works in conjunction with the Choctaw Nation, The Durant Police Department, Department of Human Services, and Families Feeding Families. Your giving will go to directly pay for the operation of the place of assistance. It may help to know that two members of the church, Harold Haddock is the Chairperson for the ACBC and Jane Haddock is the Treasurer of the ACBC, are directly working with this ministry. In the prison ministry even small funds can go a long way. Our own Don Hazell goes to some of the prisons to minister to inmates, and he has seen many come to know Christ and lives changed through this ministry. The funds collected are divided between the two missions, unless you want your giving to go to one mission, then designate on your check which mission you want to support.

Special Mission Project
Community Christian is being invited to help with a new project, Kayla's Kloset, a resource for children removed from their homes and placed in foster care. Often such children arrive with only the clothes on their backs. Then the foster home has to try to provide an entire wardrobe for them. Our church has been asked to provide size 5T boys' clothing and gently used toys. If you would like to help, please bring your items to the church.
