The Box, The Basket and The Journey

The Box, The Basket and The Journey are three ways that Countryside shares our gifts with one another and with our community.

The Box is a way to share our material possessions with one another and is located in the Foyer. Each month the box contains something different: from backpacks full of school supplies to bus passes to jars of peanut butter, to paper products, but it is always brimming with the gift of love that we share with people and organizations in need.

The Box for December – Please bring new or gently used blankets to Countryside for the Siena/Francis House blanket drive.  This organization welcomes, shelters and empowers individuals experiencing homelessness to navigate their own path to safe and appropriate housing.  These blankets will be a warm blessing to folks in our community just as January temperatures arrive in Omaha.

The Basket is Countryside’s way of sharing financial offerings with our community for the support of our ongoing program ministries.  The baskets are located at the back of the Sanctuary.

The Journey is the way we share our time and talent with one another and is printed in the Order of Worship.
