Each month volunteers at Celebration help prepare a meal for families staying at Hope Lodge.
The Winn Dixie Hope Lodge in Gainesville provides temporary residence for patients who travel to Gainesville-area cancer treatment centers for daily outpatient treatment. At the Hope Lodge, cancer patients receive support from professionals, families, friends and other patients to help build the hope needed for their personal battle against cancer.

Hospice Attic is a consignment shop in our community that helps to support our local Hospice program. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of donated items go to support unfunded hospice care and programs in Gainesville. Throughout the week we have volunteers helping out in this very important ministry. For more information click here.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is an ecumenical Christian organization that builds with people in need.
In Gainesville, local churches come together to work alongside families in our community in need of a home. Celebration puts together teams to help assist in this amazing ministry. You don’t need to be a professional builder to be part of this work, you simply need to be willing to give some of your time. For more information click here.
Bread of the Mighty Food Bank
Throughout scripture the people of God are called upon to care for the poor and hungry. One way we do this at Celebration is by supporting our local food bank.
The Bread of the Mighty Food Bank (BMFB) was established in 1987 to serve the counties of Alachua, Lafayette, Levy, Dixie, and Gilchrist in North Central Florida. BMFB functions by acquiring, storing, and distributing food and basic essentials via the support of 130 plus agency partners and more than 800 community volunteers. These agencies include soup kitchens, food pantries, and shelters. The food bank also provides direct benevolent and emergency food assistance to those who are food insecure.

HEAVENLY Hen CRAFTERS
Every Wednesday at 10 am this group of crafters gather together at church to share their talent, and their love of Jesus, with others.
All levels of artistic talent are invited to join this group. Together they design crafts to bless others. Some of their work goes to local nursing homes. The Heavenly Crafters host church wide bazaars and the funds raised help us to care for needs of church and community members. In addition to these wonderful mission projects, the crafters often help with our children's ministry by providing costumes and props for their special events.
The Crafters are always looking for new crafts and new ways to bless others!
