The McCann family has teamed up with Calvary’s UMYF to start a blessing bag ministry in memory of their son and brother, Ryan Joseph McCann.  Ryan was outgoing, funny and caring.  He was always able to bring a smile to the face of anyone he met.  We would like to continue to share his joy through this ministry. 

A blessing bag is a gallon size Ziploc bag filled with food and personal items that you keep in your car and give to hungry and homeless people when you see them on street corners asking for help.  The bags contain a variety of items such as: toothbrush, toothpaste, one size fits all gloves, chapstick, soap, washcloth, warm socks, hand cream, comb, Band-Aids, deodorant, mouth wash, nail clippers, hand sanitizer, crackers, fruit or pudding cups, granola bars, juice boxes, small bottles of water, $5 gift card to a fast food restaurant.

If you would like to help with this ministry, you can:
  • pray for the homeless and those who grieve
  • donate items to make blessing bags
  • or distribute blessing bags.  
There are two bins in the Upper Narthex outside of Room 208 (Senior High Room).  One bin is for donations; the other contains completed bags you can pick up to distribute.  If you would like to dedicate a bag to the memory of your loved one, please complete a label that can be found near the bins. 

We are excited about this new ministry and the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
