Meals on Wheels

Every Thursday morning, volunteers gather in the church kitchen to prepare delicious hot meals for 35-40 folks who are Meals on Wheels recipients.  These meals are delivered with warm smiles by our volunteer drivers who enjoy keeping in touch and sharing Christ's love with each visit.



Equal Exchange - Fair Trade products

  We are using and selling Equal Exchange – Fairly Traded

  coffee, chocolate, and olive oil.  We now only use Equal

  Exchange coffee for our church activities.  Church folks           can purchase fairly traded products during the Fellowship after church each Sunday. We know that this builds                stronger farming communities, creates a more equitable            trade model, and preserves our planet through sustainable          farming methods.  http://www.equalexchange.coop/



Family Promise of Greater Brandon

We are an active partner with Family Promise of Greater Brandon to help homeless children and their families within our community to achieve lasting independence and escape the cycle of

poverty.  Families aretemporarily housed in community

churches, including Brandon Christian Church, with meals

provided.  With the help of a professional Social

Worker and others, these homeless families will find jobs

and housing.  Brandon Christian Church provides food, lodging,   support and fellowship for these families one week every quarter.

Saturday Breakfasts

One Saturday each month (usually the second) finds volunteers from Brandon Christian preparing and serving a hearty breakfast to the neighborhood needy.  This event takes place at the First Church of the Nazarene, and we are glad to be part of this worthwhile service.



E. C. H. O.

The Emergency Care Help Organization of Brandon provides a variety of assistance programs for those living in our area.  Our congregation helps by providing non-perishable items for their food pantry.


         



Recycling

A green dumpster is located on the church property to recycle paper and cardboard products.  It's a small way to help save the planet, but every little bit helps!
