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 between the double doors at the main church entrance. 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 July– The July Box is again going to be Books for The Pantry. The following is a list of recommendations but you are quite welcome to make your own choices. The books need to be new and appropriate for a variety of ages. Thank you for encouraging children/youth to read. This will be especially appreciated with students not being able to take advantage of their school library or the city libraries at this time. After you have seen the list of recommended choices, if you still have questions; Sheila Hargreaves is the lady to ask. Thank you in advance. There will be a wish list of reading materials available on the Amazon site under Countryside Community Church Book Wish List for July. The Box is located between the double doors at the main church entrance.

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. During COVID-19 if you would like to donate you can donate online through

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