Make a Difference 2gether

Month of April: Season of Serving at Chase Oaks

An Open Invitation to Make A Difference 2gether in April!

WAYS TO PARTICIPATE

Every spring Chase Oaks Church engages the needs of our communities through various partnerships with area non-profits, cities, and local schools.  We provide a multitude of volunteers during the month of April to tackle a variety of projects for these organizations, such as helping repair code-violation homes, providing much needed yard work and landscaping, collecting food for local pantries and so much more!

At Chase Oaks Church we take seriously the command to love our neighbors! As a result, great things happen when we all join together and lock arms to serve a specific need that can only be met when we all participate.

That’s why we’re opening up our invitation to serve to everyone in our community who wants to join with us in April to Make a Difference 2gether!

Last year in 2016, we set some pretty ambitious goals to:

  • Provide 10,000 hours of volunteer service for our partners
  • Donate enough food to feed at least 10,000 people for a week
  • Raise at least $100,000 to provide financial gifts for a few selected partners

We not only met those goals, but exceeded them by donating 64,000 pounds of food to threearea food pantries (Minnie’s Food Pantry, A Christian Food Pantry, Amazing Grace Food Pantry)! If that wasn’t enough, in less than two weeks, we collected over $190,000 to divide up among five of our community partners to help them tackle some big initiatives of their own! Each partner was presented with a check for $38,122.68. All five partners were blown away by the generosity, as CEO of The Samaritan Inn, Rick Crocker, helped to sum up their gratitude,

“Thank you Chase Oakers for your partnership. You have once again proven that we are always better working together than when we go it alone.”

When asked why the 2gether campaign was such a huge success this past year, John Stanley, External Ministries Pastor, replied:

AC 2Gether Infographic 2017“We really wanted to make it easy for people to participate. Maybe not everyone could give the $22, but they could give 2 hours of service, or 2 bags of food. Our goal was to provide a catalyst to help people jump in and participate in whatever ways they could, but we just wanted everyone to do something.”

Join with Us!

We’re expanding our goals this year by asking everyone who participates to serve 2 times.  First, by serving at one of our local partners in your area, and second by serving one of your neighbors.
