We desire to partner together with other churches and organizations to be a part of making Jackson a better place for all of us. While there are lots of amazing organizations in town we partner with four specifically. If you are someone who is interested in being involved in the community we would love to help plug you into one or more of these programs.
Hunger affects everything. When you are hungry it is hard to concentrate, to learn and to build relationships. Many kids in our area don’t get enough food and it affects all of those areas of growth. We have partnered with daVinci Schools to provide food for kids over the weekends. Find out more about Food For Kids here.
The Resale Depot is a second hand store in Jackson dedicated to making our community a better place. The proceeds from the store go directly to fund ministries in the Jackson area. By helping there we get more bang for our buck – helping people find low cost clothing/housing items, and supporting Jackson ministry.
If you would be interested in volunteering at the Resale Depot they will take you anytime, but we have crews from Rivertree who help out there every Tuesday and Thursday.
Located on Wilkins St. in downtown Jackson the Together We Can Make A Difference House is actively making a difference in the lives of people in the downtown area. They serve as a cleaning house for a huge variety of ministries including:
- Kids Explosion – Bringing the message of the Love of Jesus to Jackson area children in the communities where they live.
- Cooking Classes
- Bible studies
- First Fruits – an initiative to bring fresh fruits, vegetables and meats to families who need them.
- The Priceless Gifts Toy Store – Helping families in need provide Christmas for their children.
There are few community events that lift the spirits of Jackson like the Hot Air Jubilee. We got involved as a way to bless our community. Every summer we run the Kids Kingdom for the Jubilee. This means we staff carnival style games, have fun with the kids and connect with families. It is a great opportunity for us. We are always looking for people to help plan and staff the Kids Kingdom.
