PRAY, PLEDGE, AND SERVE – 2022
Jackson Church is committed to helping people grow in their relationship with God. One way we do that is offering opportunities for individuals and families to pledge to grow spiritually; make a difference in our community; and serve the under-privillaged. Jackson Church sincerely appreciates all the prayers, donations, and commitments to the ministry of Jesus Christ! Let’s pledge towards 2022 so we deepen our relationship with God and can do even more ministry in Jackson and around the world as we continue to love as we have been loved by God and make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

The Christmas Giving Tree is an annual outreach event.  Each year we have a giving tree for children in need and children of families referred to us. The children are referred to us by Anchor House Shelter and families in the community who call us seeking help.  We provide a Christmas gift for each child. If you feel you can purchase a gift for one or more child in need, please use the link to Sign up Genius or stop by the church on Sunday and select a child to help from our list.  Sign Up Genius Link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A054FA9AF2AABF85-christmas
