“Rev. Jason and Hazelwood Congregation,

We just want to take a moment and tell you how so very thankful we are that you let us use Cartwright Hall for our funeral dinner. The cards I’ve received from members of the congregation are so thoughtful! All our love,” ~Misty Burke & Girls


“Dear Hazelwood Family,

Thank you so much for the cards, prayers, and visits at the mortuary for Dave’s mom. It meant so much to us. The flowers sent by the church were absolutely beautiful. They brightened our table for a week. Hazelwood is a wonderful place to call home.” ~The Rowe Family


“I write on behalf of the School Board of Management, teaching staff, students, and the entire community to thank you for the generous donations to our school through Prof. Winnie Muchera. The school has received the following items, which have enabled the learners to achieve their academic dreams:

  • School uniforms and sweaters for 220 students
  • School supplies
  • Sanitary pads for girls
  • Monetary donations
  • Medicine
  • T-shirts

I am happy to report that last year’s performance in the national examinations was the best ever. All the candidates joined Form One, which was a credit we shared with your church. Thank you, and may God bless you abundantly.” ~Victor Umali Songole, Principal, Shivembe Primary School

“It’s not complicated. Neighbors always help neighbors.”

The fall Simply Give campaign will run through September 28. During each Simply Give campaign, Meijer customers are encouraged to purchase a $10 Simply Give donation card upon checkout. Once purchased, the donation is converted into a Meijer Food-Only Gift Card and donated directly to the local food pantry selected by the store. Christian Ministries’ Food Pantry will directly benefit from the purchase of donation cards. DOUBLE MATCH DAYS are Friday, August 30 and Friday, September 13. On these two days your donation will be double matched. That means that your $10 will become $30. If you have questions regarding the Simply Give campaign and how it benefits Christian Ministries’ Food Pantry, please call the Christian Ministries office at (765) 288-0601.
