River Oaks Baptist and St. Paul Presbyterian Churches are teaming up to serve in the food pantry. Southwest Emergency Services serves clients in crisis who live in zip codes 77031, 77036, 77072 and 77074 by providing a five day supply of food for people experiencing hunger or food insecurity. Clients can also be referred to other agencies for long-term assistance. The food pantry managers and dedicated volunteers come from local Christian churches in the area.
If you are interested in helping, please contact Czarena Siebert at email@example.com. She can give you the necessary training materials for the varous volunteer positions, or you may show up and shadow an ROBC volunteer. All are welcome, so bring a friend! This is also a fun and rewarding way for young people to earn community service hours.
ROBC Diaper & Formula Drive for CCSC
It is an ROBC tradition to hold a Diaper & Formula Drive for CCSC in memory of faithful ROBC member and CCSC volunteer, Terry Stewart. Terry had a special heart for ministering to young families in need. If you would like to participate in this much-needed ministry, you may bring diapers (larger sides needed most), wipes, quart-sized ziplock bags, powdered baby formula and un-expired baby food to church with you the next few Sundays or bring them by the church office during the week. If you prefer to make a monetary donation, you may place your check in the ROBC offering boxes as you enter or leave the sanctuary or bring/mail it to the church office. Please make your check payable to ROBC and notate “CCSC Diaper Drive” on the memo portion of your check.
CCSC Annual Azalea Gala
Christian Community Service Center (CCSC) is excited to host its 24th annual Azalea Gala on November 3, 2021 at the Post Oak Hotel in uptown Houston. This year’s event will honor the Agee Family Foundation and its generosity to CCSC over the years. It would be wonderful if many of our River Oaks Baptist Church members could take part in this festive gala, which is CCSC’s biggest fundraising event. In addition to the celebration, it is an opportunity to share the mission of CCSC and to introduce new people to the organization.
Please consider supporting the Azalea Gala by sponsoring a table or purchasing a ticket to attend. To learn more, information may be found at ccschouston.org/azalea. Also, please feel free to contact Lauren Neimeyer at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sarah Bell at 713-516-5228 (email@example.com). Please make plans to attend.
Hope to see you there!
