TCC is a church that strives to make a difference in the world!
We’re constantly collecting food for 3 local food pantries. Our Sunday School Kids are working on a “Hope in a Box” project, filling a shoe box with non-perishables that will then be given out to local families in need.
On “BE the Church Sundays” we prepare meals at the Lazarus House Homeless Shelter. We clean the North Andover Senior Center as well as neighborhood clean-up. Our choir sings at local nursing homes on these days as well.
On Thanksgiving Sunday we collect all the items needed for delicious Thanksgiving meals for local families. Our Sunday School children fill and decorate these boxes to add a personal, faith-filled touch.
At Christmas time our “Giving Tree” collects hats, gloves, mittens and scarves, which are given out through the “Communities Together” ministry in Lawrence.
During Lent we held a food drive, entitled, “Samuel’s Challenge,” and collected over 1000 non-perishables that were donated to local food pantries. We also participate annually in “Communities Together’s” Lenten diaper drive, which collected and distributed over 22,000 diapers in 2015.
In the Spring our kids collect funds for the Heifer Project. They then select the animals they will purchase and donate to a family in need in a developing nation.
Our youth group goes on a mission trip every summer, doing a week of home repair for those who can’t afford it. They scrape and paint houses. They build and repair porches and handicapped ramps. They help repair homes and lives; and in doing so they make God’s love visible to those they serve.
These are some of the ways we strive to make a difference in our world. We never rest on our laurels. Instead we strive to hear the voice of God calling us to new and exciting adventures in discipleship and service.
