February One Thing: Thank You Notes
Each month, we focus on doing One Thing as a church to show the love of Christ. This month, we are focusing on writing thank you notes. A simple note of thanks and appreciation goes a long ways. We hope you’ll participate in this month’s One Thing by writing a thank you note to a family member, someone who’s served or is currently serving our country, a teacher, a role model, mentor or friend. Stop by a One Thing area at any campus lobby to pick up some thank you notes to mail out! As a church, we hope to write thousands of thank you’s this month!
January One Thing: Food Pantry
Each month, Embrace focuses on doing One Thing as a church to show the love of Christ to others. For the month of January, we are collecting rice, boxed meals (i.e. Hamburger Helper) and canned fruit for our local Food Pantries. Donated food products have a direct impact on relieving hunger across the country. Our local food pantries are stocked thanks to businesses, churches and individuals in our communities. THANK YOU.
December One Thing: Tree of Life
Each month, Embrace focuses on doing One Thing as a church to show the love of Christ to others. For our December One Thing, we were excited to partner with TREE OF LIFE to provide Christmas presents for all ages. As a church, we collected 1,245 gifts for babies, toddlers, children and young moms on the Rosebud Reservation. THANK YOU for sharing your love and generosity!
