Mobile Food Dist-CC.png

Both of our church locations host monthly Mobile Food Distributions. Your help with any of the three events is truly appreciated!

 

Our St. Peters campus hosts the first Monday of the month in December 2021, then beginning in January 2022 we will move to the 2nd Monday of each month, both beginning at 9a. Volunteers are asked to arrive between 8 and 8:30a. If you'll help or have questions, please contact Keith.

 

And on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month, our Ferguson campus hosts beginning at 11a. Volunteers are asked to arrive between 10 and 10:30a. Please contact Pastor Terry if you'd like to volunteer or have questions.

The Holiday season can be a difficult time for us when we have lost a loved one. If you'd like to take some time to remember those you have lost, and to fellowship with others who are experiencing the same sense of loss, please join Pastor Milan and the Elders for dinner and a time of remembrance on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at 6:00 PM. We will gather at Christ's Church in the upstairs space and ask that you RSVP no later than November 28th. Whether or not you plan to attend, you're invited to share a picture of the loved one(s) you've lost in 2020 or 2021. 

Please send pictures and advise of your planned attendance, as well a your need for a gluten free or vegetarian meal, via email or text (314-322-8612) to Samantha Pohl.

In the past, we've enjoyed adopting several families from the Sts. Joachim & Ann Care Service. This year, we will instead be adopting individuals with special needs, and here are some ways you can help:

Take a gift tag ornament(s) from the tree and purchase the item(s) requested.

Return the gift(s) to church UNWRAPPED no later than Sunday, December 5th and we will wrap them as part of our worship service on Sunday, December 5th. Please make sure the original gift tag is attached to the gift.

Donate food items that provide our adopted families with a Christmas dinner. Suggestions include, but aren't limited to:
instant potatoes/stuffing
canned gravy
canned cranberries
dinner roll mix
coffee or tea
cake mix and frosting
candy
canned goods
staple items (flour, sugar, rice, pasta, peanut butter, cereal, powdered milk, etc.). 

Please also consider:
paper goods
cleaners
personal hygiene items.
(No frozen food or perishable items, please.)

Volunteer by email to Rich Pohl if you'll help deliver gifts and food items to the community college on Saturday, December 11th.  Volunteers are needed at 9:00a to sort, box and deliver the gifts.

Sunday, December 12, 2:00 – 4:00 pm,
you and your family are invited to an afternoon of fun! Come and be part of a team to compete and see who can win some great challenges, enjoy some S'mores around a firepit, and help decorate some Christmas cookies and cards. Invite friends, family and neighbors to join you; the more the merrier! Please let us know by Sunday, December 5th, via email or text (314-322-8612) to Samantha Pohl, whether or not you will attend.

 

We're packing bags at church during worship on Sunday mornings! 

If you choose to do so, help pack bags on Sunday mornings during worship. If you're more comfortable remaining seated during this time, please pray for the students and families receiving these bags as well as the teachers and staff who identify these students in need.

Feeding this number of students each weekend is costly so we would truly appreciate any monetary donations, either online or in-person, to help support this ministry.

 

And finally, if you're interested in joining the rotation of volunteers to pick up our weekly order from Schnucks, at the corner of Mid Rivers Mall Dr and Mexico Rd, and deliver them to the church building, please contact Brenda and let her know.

Thank you for your care for kids in our community!

As a reminder:
-we request vaccinated attendees to wear a mask
-we require non-vaccinated attendees to wear a mask
-we require mask wearing for those helping with childcare. 

If you'd like to volunteer in the Toddler Room, please contact Anne to sign up. 

If we all pitch in, we can cover care for our kiddos by volunteering once every 8 weeks.
