Missions and Outreach

34 "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' " ~ Matthew 25: 34-36

2022 Initiatives

As a result of last year's missions and outreach initiatives being such a success where so many were blessed by our efforts, we plan to increase our momentum in 2022! With your help and continued support, we will implement the Angel Tree, diaper drive, and Christmas card projects again plus more. No matter what goes on in life, "giving" feels good. It is always a joy to help put a smile on someone else's face. This year,  let us continue to bring Matthew 25: 35-36 to life by blessing others who might not receive in any other way.

25 To Life 

Getting Ahead of Holiday Giving Time!

Last year 25 to Life Missions & Outreach Ministry partnered with Prison Fellowship and their Angel Tree program. We were able to bless families with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and gifts for the holiday season. We are now currently registered to receive more angels this year and will have their info available closer to the end of Fall. We are opening up this invitation up to Zion members now to give more opportunity to decide if giving to this program and adopting a child or children is something you would like to do. If you would like to adopt a child/children please send an email to zcm25tolife@gmail.com with this information:

"Tis the season for the reason to be a blessing!"
25 To Life is always on a mission to give back as much and as often as we can. Doing so takes funding. We, the members of the team, make contributions, our church, Zion Christian Ministries, and church members make contributions, and our families make contributions. We open up our giving portal to you, our friends, to be able to make contributions as well. If you would like to give toward our missions and outreach efforts, please do so below.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO SO FAR IN 2022!

Celebrating with local teachers

25 To Life made In-Service Day great for a few of Murfreesboro's finest teachers. Sticking firm to Zion's true nature, this ministry served teachers and staff at Daniel McKee Alternative School with breakfast, afternoon snack, and a small token of appretiation for their efforts and dedication in teaching. We also provided lunch and a small gift of appreciation to the staff at Holloway High School. Giving back is what it's all about. We simply desired to show appreciation to and honor those who willingly give of themselves daily teaching and instilling knowledge in our youth.

Putting in work to bless those who help fill our children with knowledge

In April we got together to craft gifts for some deserving local teachers. Intentions for these gifts are to present them during teacher appreciation week which is in May. 

We get together and have a little fun too!

Conversing and playing games together strengthens our bond as a team. We work, we serve, and we have fun!

Partnership with Habitat for Humanity

The beginning of 2022, 25 To Life teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to gift bibles to new homeowners during their key-giving ceremony. We began soliciting donations and contributions toward this initiative in February and commenced this endeavor in March when the recipients were set to receive their keys. This was another wonderful opportunity for us to present the culture of Zion and increase visibility on this body of believers all in hopes of adding to God's Kingdom.  25 To Life loves to give back... It's what we do!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY IN 2021!

25 To Life kicked off our 2021 holiday missions at the end of October, and like a whirlwind, Zion and the Rutherford County community came through with the donations and contributions. We are so thankful to each of you for your kindness and generosity. Because of you, many families were blessed. You all helped us to actually fulfill our mission of bringing Matthew chapter twenty-five to life. Each 2021 initiative, from the Angel Tree project to the diaper drive and the Christmas cards projects, was a success. 

ANGEL TREE 2021

was a success ... so many donations & gifts received and distributed

Zion Christian Ministries and 25 To Life Missions & Outreach Ministry had the opportunity to partner with Prison Fellowship to bless families of incarcerated parents by sharing the Gospel and gifting through the Angel Tree Program. We were given a total of ten beautiful children from two different families. It was such a pleasure to be able to give back to the community and spread holiday cheer to these beautiful Angel Tree children helping them to have a great Christmas. We hope it was a Christmas they will always remember.


BORO DIAPER DRIVE 2021

... another successful 25 To Life community giveaway!
25 To Life Missions & Outreach Ministry gave away diapers, wipes, and turkeys to several families over the 2021 Christmas Holiday Season. We were able to bless families with newborns and toddlers with items that can be pretty expensive when you have to purchase them on a regular basis. We also blessed families with turkeys too.  We wanted to give parents a little bit of a financial break during Christmas time as their budgets are hit a bit harder when trying to give their family a great Christmas.

2021 Operation Christmas Cards
