HaCoBA Care Ministries
From Gerald C. Lawson, Director
As we have come to the close of another year, many things run through my mind as I reflect on the year. I am grateful for the volunteers that have given of their time and talents to make this year a very successful year. The many testimonies that I have heard this year just excites me how God is using this ministry. To all the Churches that have stood with HaCoBA this past year, thank you very much. To the staff of Hamilton County Baptist Association, thank you for all your help and support.
Statistics for Church Year 2016/2017:
People receiving food was 9155, and out of that number, there were 3281 children ages 1-18. God blessed us with 76 professions of faith and 32 rededications.
The Baptist Nursing Fellowship (BNF) has registered nurses that conduct the HaCoBA Care Health Ministry under the leadership of Mrs. Mary Louise Gunnels. This year 855 blood pressures were checked, 580 pairs of glasses were given, 8 referrals were given, and 1 person was referred to Volunteers in Medicine.
The following is written through deep appreciation for support that is given to HaCoBA Care. The Sara Lee Thrift Store is a regular supplier of loaf bread. A Food City Store gives pastries and breads daily and Walmart Super Store on Signal Mountain Blvd. The Woman’s Missionary Union sponsors an annual event to promote collection of canned goods and money. Groups in a number of churches have sponsored events to collect food items. Sunday School classes and other groups send regular monetary gifts. Individuals give both monetary and material support. Some monetary gifts come through a church budget. Food collected by the U.S. Postal Service South Station annual food drive benefits HaCoBA Care. The Administrative Assistants group gives money and other support.
