BE the Church Sunday

BE the Church


The 2011 BE The Church Sunday will be held on Sunday, September 4, 2010 (Labor Day weekend).  We continue to rejoice in the success of  the last 2 year's events, and are hopeful of the many blessings we'll see as a result of next year's work. Visit for more information.


BACK TO SCHOOL CLOTHING DRIVE: As we plan the projects for the 2011 BE the Church Event, we would like to let you know about one of the projects early so that we can add to the services already in effect for making a huge impact in our community. the last couple of years, "Be the Church" has provided multiple drives, collections and donations. These have all been wonderful opportunities  to serve and to help those in need. This year we are looking at maximizing our efforts by providing a donation collection project that will provide clothes for children as they start back to school. We will be collecting items of clothing for kids from preschool through 12th grade. Labor Day weekend families will be scheduled to work with a coordinator to the needed clothes for their children. We are hoping that by working together, the churches of Plain City can help families clothe their kids for the upcoming school year.


"I needed clothes and you clothed me . . . I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:26a, 40
