Thanksgiving day dinner
We want to remember those who cannot gather around tables with family every Thanksgiving. We served a Thanksgiving dinner to approximately 600 people last year and we are looking forward to doing it again in a few weeks! Meals were provided at the church, to the John George Home, Jackson Friendly Home, and Blackman Public Safety employees.
Volunteers, food donations, and financial gifts help us make this outreach possible. A detailed list of needed food items is at the Compassionate Ministries Information Center in the Commons. Checks can be made payable to CMJC with “Thanksgiving Dinner” in the memo line.

house of prayer meeting
Prayer is arguably the most effective tool we have to know Jesus and make him known in our world. That’s why we come together to pray for each other, our church, and our world the first Tuesday of every month from 11:00a-12:00p.

Scripture is clear about the impact a man can have for Christ in his home, church, and community when he is pursuing God with intentionality. Men of our church come together, iron sharpening iron, on the second Saturday of every month at 8:00a in the Teen Center for breakfast, conversation, and a time of prayer as we seek the Lord’s guidance in our role as men of God.
There is a seat for every child of God at the Lord’s table. Our class for adults and children with special needs meets every Sunday at 11:15a. The class is growing and is in need of more volunteers. Call Karen for more information. 517.435.8148.

Kids look forward to opening presents on Christmas morning more than just about anything in the world! It’s easy to think every kid in Jackson will have a present from their parents this Christmas, but the truth is many won’t.
Stop by the Angel Tree next to the Compassionate Ministries Information Center in the Commons and grab an angel ornament with all the information you need to buy a present for a child on behalf of their incarcerated parent this Christmas. Return unwrapped gifts to the church on 12.03.17.
You can also volunteer to help wrap gifts on 12.10.17 at The Table at 9:00a and deliver them later. For more information or to sign up, visit the Compassionate Ministries Information Center or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
