Heart to hands is a ministry of First Christian Church of Chickasha, Oklahoma. This ministry is designed to serve the Grady County area. How does it work? Easy! As those in need for help such as; yard care, home repair, light home maintenance, medical transportation, light housekeeping, household items, baby needs, meals, small errands, and the like, fill out a card that indicates their specific need. Then the card is placed on a board in the sanctuary in a slot marked for that need. Then a church member with that skill set will see the card take it and fulfill that need either by them self or with another member as a partner.
And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.
Stitches of Love
Ever wanted to learn how to knit or crochet? Ever wanted to help a person no matter what age feel warm and needed? Then Wednesday at 10 am this is the place for you. This group of dedicated crafty members make everything from Prayer Shawls and hats to prayer squares and finger labyrinths. They will teach you how to create these wonderful items or if you already know how they would love you to join in the fun and powerful ministry.
Born out of necessity, this powerful ministry provides an ice chest full of Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Thursdays for all who are hungry. The ice chest is placed just outside the door and has a sign telling all who are hungry to help themselves. Various members of the church volunteer their time to make and freeze the sandwiches so they can be placed in the chest as it runs empty. Any where from 40 to 50 sandwiches are taken a day.
Disciples Women Fellowship (DWF)
Every female member of the church is automatically a member of DWF. They meet monthly for a lunch and meeting. Sometimes the lunches are held in various member’s homes and occasionally they travel to different destinations through out the great state of Oklahoma. Besides fellowship time, this group of women also perform service projects and take care of bereavement meals for funerals. DWF also has Regional and General level involvement as well.
