November 17 meet at Fort Caroline to stuff Boxes of Blessing. We will gather in the Fellowship Hall at 10:00 a.m. to prepare 200 Boxes of Blessing that will be taken the next day by many of you to bless a family who is having a tough time and needs a helping hand. Please begin praying for who that family, single adult, or widow may be you can bless with a box of food that you will deliver on November 18 or during the week. When we have the boxes packed, we will take them to the Worship Center to make them available for people to take the next day. As you deliver the box, we are going to ask you to see if the person or people are comfortable with having their picture taken and shared on Celebration Sunday, December 16.

December 16: Celebration Sunday. We will share and celebrate the results of our campaign.
*This day is going to be a great day where we will see what we have done to make a dent in our community through the money given, the time invested, food given, and lives changed. It is our hope that this day will create a movement beyond a 4-week program to a movement where we see how rich we really are and invest throughout the year. You will not want to miss this service as we see how we were able join other churches participating in Be Rich. When we join together, we can collectively impact the globe because we are rich in Christ.
Here is what I need you to do now:
· Pray for God to get our congregation excited and passionate about meeting needs right here in our own backyard. Pray for 100% participation. Pray that we can unleash a wave of generosity in our community.
· Mark your calendar with the above dates so you will not miss a single event or worship service. Seriously, be here each week and lead others to do the same.
