The Community Church, a new mission in Babcock Ranch will be “adopting” Valerie’s House, an organization in Southwest Florida that provides free grief support for children who have experienced the loss of loved ones. One way we are inviting residents in Babcock Ranch, Florida to participate in supporting Valerie’s House is by collecting loose change during the month of February. Pastor Matt or one of our Vision Team members will also pick up your change donation on the weekends. We will provide drop-off information prior to Friday so you can be prepared to bring your collected change. The campaign called “Healing Change” will provide financial support to Valerie’s House (Valerieshouse.org). An effort of our T.A.S.K force (Taking Action and Serving with Kindness).
