This year we will again provide THANKSGIVING FOOD BASKETS to Back Pack Ministry families. In an effort to fill the boxes with the same “menu,” we are requesting specific types and/or sizes of food items from the congregation. A list of requested supplies is below. A box will be set up in the office to receive your contributions. Office hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

If you have items that you would like picked up from your home, please call the office and arrangements will be made for pick up.

Information will be provided in late October about food items that may still be needed before the November 13 packing date. One basic food box with the above items is estimated to cost $15.00. Also, included in each box will be a dessert (not included in the above collections schedule) and a $25.00 gift card for the purchase of perishable food. Boxes for larger families will have more food items, with a higher estimated cost. If you wish to make a monetary donation, please identify it for the Back Pack Ministry. Monetary donations will be used for any shortages of food we may have when we’re ready to pack the boxes, and for gift cards. Any excess funds collected will be used for food purchases for the weekly snack package. If you are interested in helping decorate the boxes or paint the box lids, please let us know. This can be done at home. For questions, concerns, or more information, contact Sheila Dyer at Sdyer5@aol.com or 863-660-7006.

  • Stuffing mix - the type that only requires water, such as Stove Top

Since we will not be getting together in person and therefore unable to receive your tithes and offerings, please mail your check(s) to the church office. Ministry is still happening and we need your financial pledges and gifts. I remind you that you can do that electronically. If you pay bills online through your bank, do the same with your offering to the church...they will send us your check.

You can also give directly on this website using various services on our On-line Giving page or use PayPal by clicking the Donate button below.

Please find a way to continue to get your offering to the church.



If you are new to our church or to the Lakeland area, we welcome you.  If you are looking for a church home, we would love to give you more information about our church, our beliefs, and our programs.  You can learn some things about us in these pages.

If you would like to know more, contact us and we will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
