Holiday 2019 Mercy Opportunities

Thanksgiving Food Drive: Donations Due Sunday, November 17th

The Mercy Team is partnering with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC. Our goal is to provide holiday meal staples and pray for 40 local families! We ask that donations be bagged up and contain the following holiday food items: boxed stuffing mix, instant mashed potatoes, box of whole grain pasta, canned vegetables, canned soup and paper towels. A box for donations will be available at the front of the sanctuary. Contact Mark and Megan Van Hook at for more information.

Operation Christmas Child: Donations Due Sunday, November 17th

The Mercy Team and Midtown Sprouts are organizing donations for Operation Christmas Child. Fill a shoe box with items and pray for the child who will receive your gift! Each box also needs a $9 donation (payable through the Operation Christmas Child website) to cover shipping costs. Midtown Spouts will be sorting and collecting the filled shoe boxes and the Mercy Team will bring to donation sites. Please see How to Pack a Shoebox for gift suggestions, printable labels and to pay the $9 shipping cost online. Filled shoe boxes can be dropped off at the Midtown Sprouts area (please label boxes with the child’s age range and gender). Contact Mark and Megan Van Hook at for more information.
