Outreach & Missions

Our mission is to do as much good as we can. We reach out to those in need through various programs.  Our congregation supports all our efforts to meet the needs of those in our community who need emergency food, help at the holidays, Christmas gifts for children and/or a warm coat in winter.

We are currently in need of the following items:  Chicken noodle soup, vegetable soup, cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, Spaghetti sauce, Crushed tomatoes, canned tomatoes, beef gravy, chicken gravy, baked beans, coffee, tea, jelly, peanut butter, canned chicken, mashed potatoes, crackers, mac and cheese, mayonnaise, muffin mix, cake mix and frosting and shelf stable milk.  As always, gift cards in $20 denominations will be much appreciated.  

This 13- week program is a Bible-based program with direction and purpose and that is to comfort and support those who have lost loved ones as they walk through the journey of grief. It is a place where people find healing and hope. If interested, you can find a group that meets in person or online at www.griefshare.org.  You may search for a group by your location, church or other parameters.  Jackson Church currently does not offer the program.

Each year in October, Outreach and the Sunbeam Preschool have a coat drive. We collect gently used coats and jackets. We need pre-teen, teen and adult (men and women) jackets and coats. The coats are distributed to Anchor House Children’s Shelter and Family Outreach Programs in Trenton. The coat drive runs through the month of October, start saving your coats for 2024!

Thank you to everyone who provided gifts this year!
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.
