We strive to provide environments and opportunities for our church body to carry out that vision. 2C is a practical way for us to send our Church into our local community to be the hands and feet of Jesus, showing compassion and care (2C) through our local missions.

Our 2C Ministries include areas that you and your family can serve our community through community projects in the neighborhood, our Adopt-A-Parks, feeding the homeless and hurting in our community, serving at local nursing homes and pregnancy centers, our pantry and coaching ministry.

Manna Bags are a great way to put hope in the hand of the hopeless, just roll down your window and give someone hope today!

What is in a Manna Bag? Every Manna Bag has each food group and personal hygiene items, accompanied with a resource insert. The concept was created to meet basic nutrition needs for each day and resources for future needs. Each Bag Includes: Breakfast Bar - grains, Pop-Top Beef Stew - protein, Raisins - fiber, Pudding - calcium, Bar Soap, Toothbrush/paste, Cutlery Kit, Printed Insert Front: Worship Service information for Spiritual Growth Back: Ministry resources including Mobile Ministry, Interfaith Kitchen, etc. that provide clothes, tents, hot meals, prayer and Bible fellowship.

How much does a Manna Bag cost? We offer Manna Bags FREE to our church body in the Sending Zone at the 2C HUB. It costs approximately $4 to create each Manna Bag from the bag to insert. If you feel led to give a monetary donation, you can note Manna Bag on the memo of your check or offering envelope anytime.

+ SENDING ZONE

It was designed to create a centralized location for our church body to get more information about local sending opportunities and to sign-up for many of these opportunities.

While you are at the 2C HUB don't forget to pick up a Manna Bag to share with the Homeless in our community and surrounding areas. Manna Bags are a fantastic way to just roll down your window and give someone hope.

+ Care

When you're hurting, it's difficult to focus on anything other than the pain. Whether it's a conflict in your marriage, an addiction, a death in the family, or another emotionally difficult issue, life can quickly become unmanageable. Often times we can lean on friends, family or a small group to help us through a tough time. Sometimes, however, problems become more complicated and we need guidance. The Journey has several environments to guide you with your struggles. CARE can help you find your place in one of these environments or help refer you to a caring outside Christian counselor.

For guidance and direction, whether in finding a small group, sitting with a Pastor for spiritual guidance, or professional counseling resources and services outside of the Journey, please contact CARE, where a trained and caring team member can assist you in finding your place.
