Christ UMC has joined the Freedom from Hunger–Feeding the 5,000 Community Food Drive. Please spread the word throughout your neighborhoods and community meetings and events that, through August 3, Christ Church is one of the drop-off points for food to be donated to Greensboro Urban Ministry.

In addition, August 3 is the next First Food Sunday at Christ Church. Please bring food with you to donate to Greensboro Urban Ministry. During the four services that Sunday, you will be given the opportunity to place your donations in the boxes that will be at the altar in the Sanctuary and in front of the stage in the Fellowship Center. Here and throughout churches in Greensboro, the scripture reading will be about the feeding of the 5,000. This scripture is the inspiration for Greensboro Urban Ministry’s Freedom From Hunger-Feed the 5,000 Food Drive taking place through August 3. Let’s help feed the 5,000.
