Grandin Court Baptist Church!
Pack-a-Snack – Part of the ministry of the local Congregations in Action, food donations are welcome throughout the year (peanut butter, drink boxes/Capri Suns, peanut butter crackers, oatmeal, granola bars, etc) and can be dropped off in the MAC lobby or in the grocery cart across from the parlor. You can also help through packing – bags go home each week with students who are identified as food insecure. These students may or may not have enough food at home to feed them for the weekend. Bags can be packed at any time and put in bins that are delivered to the schools each Thursday morning.
Cookies for the Rescue Mission – Donate some cookies and some snack size ziploc bags and help us fill in the weekend lunch bags for the Rescue Mission. Often meals are donated, leftovers and extras from local organizations, but some cookies for the children go a LONG way. The group gathers on Wednesday evenings to pack the cookies and deliver them. Cookies and bags can be donated in the bright green KIWI boxes in the MAC lobby and across from the parlor.
Family Promise – Four times a year Grandin Court hosts families that are working towards finding permanent housing. Families stay together – mother, father, children – and rotate a week at a time between the various partnering churches. Beds are rolled in, dinners are provided, and great conversation with the volunteers and families takes place. Volunteers are needed to provide food, to be on-site in case a need comes up overnight, and to help with set-up and clean-up.
Puerto Rico – Beginning in 2019, Grandin Court has established a relationship with Iglesia Bautiste de Metropolis in Carolina, Puerto Rico. With regular trips, communication, service, and offerings, there are a wide variety of ways to be involved. Volunteers to go on various trips, donations to offerings, prayer partners, and more will develop as this relationship continues to develop.
Nicaragua – Beginning in 2020, Grandin Court joined with the Baptist General Association of Virginia and Food for the Hungry in a multi-year strategic partnership in the Chinandega region of Nicaragua. Through child sponsorship, trips, and ongoing relationship building, there are a lot of ways to be involved. If you are interested in child sponsorship, please click here.
