Martha serves


Martha Serves was Saturday, April 18th. Martha Serves is a time each spring where we come together as a church and go out into the community to serve together and share the love of Christ with Macon.


Like everything else, it looked quite different this year. But as we reached out to our local mission partners here in Macon, they were sharing that the need is dire to continue to serve and love "the least of these". Shelter in place is hard when you don't have a shelter. Families who now are forced to eat 3 meals a day at home is difficult when your kids relied on breakfast and lunch at school.


HOW YOU CAN CONTINUE TO HELP:


*Martha Bowman will be open for drop off on Monday - Thursday 10AM - 4PM. Please leave items in the cardboard boxes located outside the main entrance of the church.*
