On Saturday, October 30, 2021 members and friends of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Gulfport hosted a Fall Festival and Trunk or Treat. We had food, games, and plenty of candy.
First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Gulfport built and delivered bunk beds for homes that were preparing to take in displaced foster children.
January 2018 we again teamed up with The Rotary Club of Gulfport-Orange Grove to have a Little Free Library installed on the church property.
In 2017 Loaves and Fishes (a local soup kitchen) held its very first fundraiser in their 33 years of serving the homeless in Biloxi. Volunteers would sleep in a tent at Loaves and Fishes to help raise funds and shed light on the plight of the homeless.
Members and friends of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Gulfport prepare and deliver 80 sack lunches to Feed My Sheep the first Sunday of every month. Elders noticed that some of the clients at Feed My Sheep would bring their dogs with them and share their sack lunches with the dogs.
We have been supporting GCCM for several years with monthly donations to their food pantry, and clothing closet. Each Thanksgiving we support their Thanksgiving Meal bag drive by collecting dozens of meal bags for distribution to families that might not otherwise have a Thanksgiving meal. The Covid-19 pandemic stressed already scarce resources for the homeless in our community.
