Due to the coronavirus, many throughout the land have lost their jobs, their source of income, and now these families are struggling with food insecurity. Heartsong’s Second Helping Food Pantry has been striving to meet this need locally by making and distributing hundreds of Emergency Food Boxes. These boxes have been provided for by the people of Heartsong Church and the Memphis Food Bank, as part of the nationwide Feeding America network.
“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. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,” (Matthew 25:34-35)
To raise money in continued support of Feeding America’s mission, Pastor Chris is taking the Quarantine 15 Challenge (though he admits 15 lbs. is a high bar). He’s asking you to sponsor him a specific dollar amount of your choosing for every pound of weight he loses during the month of June! You can sponsor him for $1, $10, $100, whatever - per pound!!
But there’s more! If you also want to raise money for Feeding America, Pastor Chris and his wife, Leslie, will sponsor all Heartsongers $1 per pound of weight loss, too!!
He’ll be publicly weighed on Facebook Live at “Heartsong Church” at 7pm, on Sunday, May 31. He’ll then be weighed again on FB Live, Wednesday, July 1. For every pound he’s lost, you donate according to your sponsorship to Feeding America through Heartsong. His goal is to lose as much as possible, so that you can donate as much as possible to those who are struggling with food insecurity ☺
Fellow Heartsong faithful, Brooke Henderson, is our official weight and sponsorship tracker. To sponsor Pastor Chris, email Brooke at firstname.lastname@example.org, put your name in the Subject Line, then in the email tell her how much per pound you’re sponsoring Pastor Chris (really, Feeding America!).
And if you want Chris and Leslie to sponsor you, then simply type “I’m In,” and Brooke will email you on the 31st for your starting weight (No one but Brooke will know your name or numbers), then again on July 1, for you ending weight. She’ll do all the math!!
On Sunday, July 5, we’ll announce how much is being
donated in support of Feeding America!
