1) Annual Taste of Reconciliation – Every year we partner with Living Springs CC to have a special time of fun, ethnic food, & a multicultural worship service where we are challenged in the area of Reconciliation. Hundreds are blessed and inspired. It is our desire not only for you to attend this event but also to help your church host your own “Taste of Reconciliation”. We can also help your church set up a special committee to help guide the church in reconciliation issues. (Last Sunday of July, 5:00 p.m.) SEE WWW.TASTEOFRECONCILIATION.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION.)

2) DAY OF KINDNESS: (NEW - third Saturday of August) CHRIST CARES coordinates a collaborative effort to smother a community with acts of kindness in an effort to share the GOOD NEWS with their community.
3) GOOD NEWS DAY: (NEW - Sat. before Easter) Christ Cares coordinates a collaborative effort of churches to visit every home in their community – asking each family how they could pray for them as well as leaving evangelistic materials and an invite to the Easter Service.
4) INTERNET EVANGELISM DAY - We are a strong supporter on the International Internet Ministry Day. This is a Sunday (usually in April- but an individual church can have it anytime), that a church draws attention to the various methods of Web Evangelism & Ministry. CHRIST CARES provides free training and materials. Do a web search for "Web Evangelist Scott Reese" or "Internet Minister" for more information on "Internet Ministry".
5) FEED THE HUNGRY DAY - America's economic slowdown has placed a strain on Christian food pantries in the area. Your church chooses one (or more) Sunday a year for members to bring in canned goods and non perishable food. CHRIST CARES will be there to answer questions, & pick up the food to distribute to churches and Christian non profit organizations that minister to those in need. Also please let us know If your church's food pantry is low.
6) As God guides, we will be adding to our ministry endeavors. We are also available to help you or your church - whether it is developing a new ministry or consulting to help improve a current program.

Day of Kindness...
Third Saturday in August. Does your community know that your church is in existence? Does it know that you care? Join other Christians on the third Saturday of August to flood your community with "acts of kindness". More details coming soon - please let us know if you or your church group would like to be involved.
Did you know that there are people who live only a few blocks from your church that probably have never heard the GOOD NEWS?
Join us on the Saturday before Easter to invite your unchurched neighbors to Easter Services and to share the GOOD NEWS. More information coming soon.
