Blessing Bags

In an effort to have food on hand for those in the Ferguson, Missouri community who are in need during the Covid-19 crisis, we're partnering with Renewing Life Church in Ferguson and with Christ's Church in St. Peters, Missouri. We are asking you to consider completing a Blessing Bag (at a cost of approximately $25). It's easy to do, and here's what it includes:

  • Box of cereal
  • Chicken broth
  • Jar (or can) pasta sauce
  • Spaghetti noodles
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Jar of unsweetened applesauce
  • Can of fruit packed in fruit juice
  • Can of beans
  • Jar of peanut butter
  • Two cans of tuna or chicken
  • Can of green beans
  • Can of corn
  • Bag of rice
  • Two 18-oz cans of soup (ie. Chunky Chicken Noodle)
  • Bar soap
  • Toothpaste

Ways you can help

  • Put together complete bags (or boxes)

  • Contribute $25 to the Crisis Fund to cover the cost of a Blessings Bag (you can text the amount to 84321, or give online)

  • Give $10 grocery store gift cards to include with each bag to be used to purchase perishable food items like meat and produce
