Are you interested in helping the homeless in our community secure shelter overnight this coming winter? Loaves & Fishes and Christ Church are cooperating to provide overnight housing beyond the space at the shelter, and they are in need of some supervisors for this ministry. You can help by contacting Mary at Loaves & Fishes (719-275-0593) or Pastor Mark Meyer at Christ Church (719-275-2028).
Loaves & Fishes accepts donations throughout the year to help families in our community, but during the cold months their need is always greater.
Each month we are asking for you to shop at the store or in your cupboards for non-perishable food to help stock the Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry.
NOVEMBER THEME –Anything that you might see at a holiday dinner: canned yams, cranberry sauce and green beans, boxes of stovetop stuffing, instant mashed potatoes, and dessert kits. Just about anything!
DECEMBER THEME –Holiday treats: cookie mix, cake mix, pie kits, Christmas cookies, and candy. Also--tea, instant coffee, and hot chocolate mix. Everyone likes a treat now and then!
Drop off your non-perishable food donations in the CFF Lobby to help keep the food pantry stocked.
The theme of this book is how God wants believers in Christ to live in the midst of a corrupt culture. The apostle Paul is the author. He addresses various problems within the Corinthian church, including sectarianism, immorality, Christians taking one another to secular courts, marital questions, idolatry and the improper administration of the Lord's Supper. Paul offers the proper use of spiritual gifts and reviews the doctrine of resurrection and includes his parting comments.
