The F.U.E.L program for Cheatham County provides a selection of foods for students who, for a variety of reasons, may not have enough to eat during the weekends.
Each Sunday, the children in our church collect Coins for Kids, gathering donations of pocket change and small bills from the congregation to support this mission.
This school year our church will provide 975 backpacks full of nutritious snacks to feed 25 elementary school children at risk for hunger in Kingston Springs.
