Getting sick is never fun no matter who you are! This season of life it feels like many of us are saying to our friends, families, and acquaintances "Hope you get better soon". Through the Hope Shows Up ministry, Gracepoint Church wants to give you another way to say to those feeling sick that you are thinking and caring about them - the Better Box. This box will be filled with items that any person feeling under the weather will appreciate and know that you are thinking about them. When you know of any person feeling ill, pick up a Better Box and drop it off on their doorstep. Go ahead and add any additional items or a note to the box that will help personalize it for the person you are caring for.
Before we can starting sharing this act of love, we need help filling these boxes. This is where you can help! There are specific items that can be donated to be put in each box:
- 20 oz Gatorades
- Saltine Crackers
- Hot Tea Packets
- Individual Kleenex Packs
- Cough Drops
These items can be donated at the Gracepoint Church office located at 513 Hilltop Road Suite 4 in the Billings Heights on Monday through Friday between 9am and 4pm.
Better Boxes will be available to pick up Sunday mornings at Medicine Crow Middle School during Gracepoint's worship service. Boxes can also be picked up throughout the week Monday-Friday 9am-4pm at the Gracepoint Church office foyer.
Let's get excited about sharing the love of Jesus through a Better Box!
Delivering Hope to Families
And let our people learn to devote themselves to good works,
so as to help cases of urgent need, and not be unfruitful.
~ Titus 3:14 ~
During difficult times, we as Christ followers have opportunities to shine a light to the world through our faith in Jesus Christ. Our mission at Gracepoint Church is to engage our calling to share hope to all people, helping them grow as prolific followers of Jesus. This is an opportunity for you to grow in your faith while showing the love of Christ to the Billings Heights community.
In April and May 2020, Gracepoint partnered with Medicine Crow Middle School to provide meal boxes and groceries on Saturday mornings to families in our community that had a need. We have been beyond thankful to have this opportunity to care for those in the school that we regularly meet! We are transitioning to an as needed basis for families and are no longer delivering on Saturday mornings. We will still have a food pantry available. If you are in need or have a coworker, neighbor, or friend you would like to bless, please contact the church at firstname.lastname@example.org so you can use the pantry!
We are accepting food donations still as you feel led so we can continue the food portion of this ministry. Stop by our office at 513 Hilltop Road Suite 4, Monday-Friday 9am-4pm to drop food in our donation bins.
Stay tuned for new opportunities to serve in the Hope Shows Up ministry!
