Helping Needy Families

The Bible is pretty cut-and-dry on this:

Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them. (Proverbs 3:27)

What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. (James 2:14-17)

So here’s an easy way for those of us in Kent County to do something within our power to help the needy among us:

Buy An Extra Bag Or Two Of Groceries

While the County-Wide Food Drive is going on, take an extra grocery bag or two with you, and fill them up. You will be making a huge difference in the lives of some needy families. You can get a list of needed food and staple items from Access Of West Michigan’s website by clicking here.

Food needs to be turned in to a collection site by Saturday, October 8. If you are in the Cedar Springs area, you can drop off your donations at Calvary Assembly of God, and we’ll deliver them for you.
