I learned recently that the youth and children’s ministries at First United Methodist Church have launched a wonderful community outreach project called Blessing Boxes.
The Blessing Boxes are wooden stations installed at several sites around Altus. The boxes are to be filled with nonperishable food and other essentials, so that people in our local community will be able to take what they need and give what they can, at any time of the day.
Each Blessing Box was hand-painted by a creative group of local children and teenagers.
There are four different Blessing Box locations around Altus.
• First United Methodist Church, on the SW side.
• Spirit of the Lord Church, on the SE corner.
• Strong Tower Ministries.
• Grace New Life Fellowship, at the youth center.
