Kindness that makes a way

The CityCare Easter initiative provides a practical way for our church to show love to those in need in our backyard by shopping items that can all be bought at grocery stores.

The CityCare Easter initiative is the practical outworking of the Easter message that cross = love. It aims to show families and individuals in our communities that we care about them and that they belong here. Our congregations are encouraged to donate grocery items, by bringing in bags of groceries during weekend services leading up to Easter.

The groceries are either distributed directly to refugee families, the homeless community and elderly we know personally, or through shelters we partner with in our communities.

Deadline for handing in items across all locations:

Easter Sunday, April 21

 

 

How to participate

1. Pick up shopping list and a grocery bag from the CityCare stand or view it here.

2. Fill the bag with some or all of the items on the shopping list specific for you city.

 

3. Hand in the groceries at the CityCare stand in the foyer during weekend services before Easter Sunday, April 21.
