c2C Mission outreach

God is always drawing our attention off from ourselves and onto others; others who need to be served, loved, healed, and restored. The maturity of our discipleship can be seen in how we serve others; Christ being strong in us.

Mission outreach is all about partnering with God in service. At C2C Church we believe in “bridging the gap between worship and missions”. As followers of Christ, our members love to worship together. But we also understand the importance of spreading the Good News of our Lord, Jesus Christ, through reaching out into our community, state, and world through missions.

The C2C Missions Team supports the following within our community (in addition to those listed within the quarterly outreaches): Tampa Bay Pro-Life Alliance, the Hispanic Outreach Center, Rabbi Ron Speaks, Women With Purpose, & Shepherd’s Village. We also support Truck Stop Ministries on a national level and the Gideons and World Vision on a Global level.

We were honored to partner with our friends from Pack-A-Snack at Oakhurst Elementary School, the SPC Food Pantry, Lifeline Ministry Food Pantry at St Jerome Catholic Church, FLUFF Animal Rescue, The Bully Project of Polk County, and Keep Pinellas Beautiful Adopt-A-Mile Clean-up.

Food deliveries were made to Pack-A-Snack, the SPC Food Pantry and the Lifeline Ministry Food Pantry.

We collected supplies from our kind and generous congregation for FLUFF Animal Rescue and partnered with our Royal Neighbors Chapter to provide a monetary gift from RN and Missions.

Finally, the first quarterly clean-up for Adopt-A-Mile was a success.
