The JCCC Menís has partner with the IMPACT Group. The
Menís group have started a tool pantry for families involved
in their housing program we have asked our men and members
of the church to bring lawn tools which will help a new
family in their new home provided by The IMPACT Group.
Years ago our church introduced a program in support
of North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) that we affectionately
call "DAWGS" or Dollar A Week Grocery Savings.
With our members and participants contributing just a dollar
a week, we have been able to purchase thousands of canned
goods which have been donated to NFCC and distributed at
Thanksgiving to qualified needy families. It is that time
of year again when we are soliciting your help. Please consider
giving your "dollar a week" offering towards this
important ministry. We will be purchasing our canned goods
on Thursday, November 20th, so please give generously.
