COMMUNITY MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES

 The Clarksville Prayer Box Ministry, an interdenominational group of women in the community, are providing prayer boxes at Meadowview Terrace Nursing Home, the YMCA Complex and the Clarksville Town Office.  The prayer boxes will be at the locations by the first week in November.  Th;e Clarksville Police station has also approved having a prayer box at the station and will be operational as soon as another prayer box is made ready. With each public prayer box, there will be blank forms for people to use to submit their praises and concerns.  The boxes will be collected weekly and prayed over by the Community Prayer Team.  People will be able to choose to have only the team pray for the request or it can be shared with local congregations.  Our community needs are important to us and more importantly to GOD.  If you would like to become a member of this Prayer Ministry, please contact Elaine Senz at 434-374-2649

Backpack Buddies: The start of the school year also signals the start of our Backpack Buddies program.  Jamieson currently has over 30 volunteers who work on a rotating schedule to help pack, deliver, and distribute food bags at the elementary school each Friday afternoon.  The bags contain weekend meals for children from food insecure homes.  Please pray for this program and the children and families that it touches.  If you are interested in serving or learning more about the program, please contact Elaine Senz, 374-2649.

Lunch Buddies:  Clarksville Elementary School needs lunch buddies.  For more information or to sign up, contact the School Counselor at 374-8668.
