In keeping with the church theme of “Service, not lip service,” First Christian Church always welcomes new visitors and encourages everyone to become involved in our mission to serve. Outreach activities provide needed services to several organizations at any given time. The following activity will appeal to those who enjoy cooking and preparing dishes that will be served to families at Chattanooga Room In The Inn this Sunday, Sept. 29. Please call 267-4506 or 883-9083 if you would like to make a dish to share.
The Community Kitchen provides more than 120,000 meals to homeless people yearly. First Christian Church members volunteer on the first and third Fridays to help prepare part of these meals. This fall, the church began a spaghetti and spaghetti sauce drive on Sept. 22 running through Oct. 3. It takes 96 cans of spaghetti sauce to provide one meal and our goal is to collect enough to help with several meals. Members and visitors are encouraged to donate large packages of spaghetti and sauce for the drive. Please drop off items in the donation center of the church lobby.
Due to requests by church members, an additional outreach activity has been scheduled for Oct. 2 at the Chattanooga Food Bank from 9 a.m. to noon. If you enjoy providing service and making a difference, come join us. Call 267-4506 for more information.

Assistive listening devices are provided for members and guests with hearing loss while many Sunday services are captioned as well. All are welcome.
