321Update

In the wake of the current COVID-19 crisis, Missions at Burnt Hickory would like to invite you to continue to serve our community in a time when they need it most.  We realize this may look a lot different from your original 321Serve plan and we will be posting opportunities throughout the coming weeks to help you navigate an updated plan.  You will be able to find ideas and opportunities here on this page as well as the Missions at Burnt Hickory facebook page. 

 

FOOD FOR FAMILIES

We are continuing our 321Serve challenge by banding together as a church and working with several of our school and community partnerships to assist in feeding families. We are preparing and delivering food boxes to families that our partners have identified as the most in need. Each of these boxes will have over $200 worth of non-perishable food items and we want to reach at least 50 families in our community. Help us by donating today!
