Some of our Community Collective ministries occur once a year, some are seasonal events, while others occur throughout the year as needs arise throughout Jackson County. CMJC evaluates each community need brought to our attention prior to providing support. Our prayer is that through these acts of service, people will encounter the love of God through his people.
HOSPICE COMFORT BASKETS
Often times, families with loved ones receiving care at the Henry Ford Allegiance Hospice Home in Jackson, do not want to leave the side of their family member. These baskets filled with snacks, puzzle books and words of encouragement, allowing for family members to stay with their loved one, providing tangible items of support for the grieving family. Specific items are needed for baskets and donations are greatly appreciated.
During the Thanksgiving holiday season, Compassionate Ministries partners with local schools, providing Thanksgiving baskets to families identified by the school as in need of assistance at Thanksgiving.
FOOD BASKETS AT CHRISTMAS
CMJC partners with NW community schools, providing food to the school for their Christmas food boxes that are given to families in the NW district.
BACK TO SCHOOL BASH COMMUNITY RESOURCE FAIR
Each year in August, we participate with other community organizations throughout Jackson County, providing back to school supplies for thousands in our community. This event occurs in August.
OTHER COMMUNITY EVENTS
CMJC loves Jackson! We receive a large amount of invites to participate in community events throughout the year. We evaluate the event to see if it aligns with our mission. If the event aligns with who we are and what we believe in, our leadership determines whether to be part of the event.
Some events that we’ve hosted and/or been part of include, the Go-Go’s Christmas, BBBS Thanksgiving Dinner, Project Homeless Connect, Back to School Bash and more.
