Our Benevolence and Backpack Buddy Ministry Teams  had another busy and fruitful year in 2023.
The Benevolence Ministry helped more than 180 families in the Leeds area with assistance totaling more than $40,000. This includes help with food, clothing, utilities, travel, medical assistance and more.
Benevolence also, with the help of church members, helped Leeds Outreach with its “Back to School Supplies”, our Children’s Ministry with its “Trunk or Treat” event, and provided 30 families with 49 pairs of new athletic shoes for Christmas.
Our Backpack Teams purchased, packed and delivered more than 800 bags of supplemental weekend meals for children at the Leeds Primary School. These snack pack bags are sent home each week with students who have been identified by school counselors as being at risk.
With your help, these two ministries will continue to bless those in need in real ways by showing them the love of Jesus.
Please consider giving to Coins of Compassion.
