CCSC Monthly Mission Report

  

Many thanks to these ROBC volunteers who lovingly became the hands and feet of Jesus at the CCSC Food Pantry on Saturday, November 29th: Patty Legler, Roy & Cheri Pemble, Kim Shoemaker, Lois Wright, and granddaughter, Maddie.

We served 53 families, and even had ground beef to distribute.  We were able to give out lots of age-appropriate books for children, as well as school supplies and backpacks.

It was a wonderful day to serve God’s children!

Our next volunteer opportunity will be in January 2022.

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 czarena.siebert@hpe.com.  She can give you the necessary training materials for the various 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.


 

CCSC Martha's Way Program

Are you looking for a housekeeper or maid service in the Houston area?  Christian Community Service Center can help!  CCSC has a wonderful training program called Martha’s Way in which students are professionally trained according to leading industry standards to clean all areas of your home and provide stellar customer service, with impeccable attention to detail. Graduates of the 42-hour training are experts in eco-friendly and safe cleaning techniques and are ready to make your home sparkle.  Most of the students are also trained in how to run an independent housekeeping business.

So, if you are looking for someone to do regular housekeeping, hire a Martha’s Way  graduate!  Or, if you need help with one time, seasonal, or special event cleanings, hire a Martha’s Way graduate!     

When you hire a Martha’s Way graduate, you receive outstanding service, and you make a difference in the life of a budding entrepreneur.

CCSC 25th Annual Azalea Gala - Sept 21, 2022

CCSC's 24th annual Azalea Gala on November 3, was a huge success!  This year’s event honored the Agee Family Foundation and its generosity to CCSC over the years.

Next year's Azalea Gala, is already scheduled for September 21, 2022.  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 for the 2022 Azalea Gala.  To learn more, information may be found at ccschouston.org/azalea.  Also, please feel free to contact Lauren Neimeyer at lniemeyer@ccschouston.org or Sarah Bell at 713-516-5228 (sarah.smith.bell@gmail.com).   Please make plans to attend.
