Christmas is the season to give. I would like to update you on some of the giving that Eastside has been doing lately during this season of giving….
1. Amy Collins is on her way back from Guatemala. She and a few other people from Central Kentucky went to Guatemala to Christmas shop for the girls home in Guatemala. Eastside gave $2,435.00 for this endeavor.
2. Day of Hope Sponsorship – Eastside helped to sponsor the Day of Hope Event in Berea where a meal was served to over 800 families who also received a box of food for the Holiday Season. A group of men from Berea takes the lead on this endeavor each year. Eastside provided the following for this event: $1,600.00 in sponsorship; the block party trailer with about 20 volunteers working throughout the day.
3. Children/Preschool Christmas Play and Mission Meal – The children/preschool departments did an AWESOME job last night. After their wonderful performance (which I may add was the best in our church history) we had a mission dinner which collected $1,425.00 for the Ty Lucas Foundation and Toys for Tots. I would like to thank our Tuesday Night Men’s Group for sponsoring this event and BIG SHOUT-OUT goes to Leigh Pence at Butt Rubb BBQ who once again cooked our briskets for FREE of CHARGE! Their number is 277-0099. Way to go, Eastsiders! You are the best.
4. Baskets for Richmond Manor Residents – The children’s department is currently collecting 20 baskets to give away at our Christmas Party for the children/families at Richmond Manor. Eastside is doing a weekly Bible Study on Wednesday nights with the children. We have 6 baskets that still needs to be taken. The approximate cost of each basket is $87.00. Contact Carla Perry at 893-4757 or at email@example.com for more information.
5. Collection for Ty Lucas Foundation and Toys for Tots – Eastside’s Preschool and Children Departments have been conducting a toy drive for the Ty Lucas Foundation and Toys for Tots. As of today, we have collected around 100 new toys. That’s AWESOME Baby.
Tis the season to give….I am so glad to be a part of a GIVING CONGREGATION! Eastside ROCKS!
Remember…Jesus is the reason for the season!
Have a great week,
