We Gather Together | 2/14/2016

We Gather Together is an annual gathering among churches in the Pottsboro Ministerial Alliance that work together to restock the food pantries of our local Resale Barn and Visions of Sugarplums.

On Sunday, February 14th, we will have a Family Worship Service (which means no Children's Church) at 10:45a, partake in the Lord's Supper, and then be let out early to join the other churches at Brookshire's in Pottsboro. The trailers will be open from 11:30a-2:00p

The Pottsboro Ministerial Alliance (PMA) is a group of churches in the city of Pottsboro that work alongside each other to reach our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Visions of Sugarplums (VOS) is a non-profit organization that provides meals (such as breakfast and lunch) during extended school breaks and on weekends to students who qualify for the free or reduced-cost meal program in the Pottsboro ISD. At Christmas 2015, about 140 children and teens in the Pottsboro ISD received assistance. During the fall of 2015, VOS provided about 75 backpack snacks each weekend.

The Resale Barn helps area residents in need in numerous ways. One major way is through a food pantry. In 2015, the Resale Barn supported families in Grayson County with over $300,000 in financial aid.

Click HERE for a complete shopping list of items that can be purchased at Brookshire's on February 14th. There will be trailers outside of the store for you to place your goods in.
