SCCC has often extended a helping hand through our Compassion Ministry — Christmas hampers, and emergency compassion needs. ‘Need’ is ever present, and unexpected emergencies do arise.
December offers us a unique opportunity to encourage households. South Calgary is receiving referrals for individuals and families who need food support.
If you are aware of a family or individual who would benefit from receiving our support of a grocery card, please call or email the office with your referral.
We have moved away from a physical food hamper to gifting a ‘grocery card’ so each household can purchase the food and other items they most need. Each delivery is a hand-delivered Christmas greeting from you, the congregation of South Calgary.
This Sunday, December 4th, is the second opportunity to give an offering to the Christmas Hampers. Designate your gift as ‘hamper’.
For your information, offerings to Compassion needs over-and-above your regular tithes are also eligible for a receipt. At any time, donations to “compassion” or “hamper” can be designated on your offering envelope or online giving transaction. Remember to use the full name ‘South Calgary Community Church’ on any cheques.
