In 2017, we will focus on serving our city throughout the year. On the second Saturday of each month we will highlight a specific ministry or service project. This will be a wonderful opportunity not only for our ministry partners to get more support throughout the year, but also for our families to have an ongoing opportunity to serve in different capacities in the hopes that many can find an area of regular service that fits their gifts and schedule.
On June 9-10, show our heroes some extra love and appreciation by fixing a care basket and taking it to a local police or fire station. Let's HONOR OUR HEROES, who do so much to serve our community.
You will find a list of suggested care basket items below, as well as on the signup page. Don't let these lists limit you - feel free to get creative (and let the kids help)! This is a great activity that can involve the whole family.
PLEASE help us by signing up to take a basket during an approved time slot to a specific police or fire station. This helps us keep track of which stations we have covered and which still need attention. Sign up here.
When you drop off your basket (or box, or whatever container works best for you), stop and pray for and with the workers, then TAKE A PICTURE WITH A HERO. Post it to social media with the hashtags #HonorOurHeroes and #ServingTheCity, then share it on the Willowbrook Missions Facebook page.
