Ma Ma Creek Church of Christ helps local farmers

Ma Ma Creek Church of Christ members have rallied together in support of local drought-affected farmers and families in Fordsdale, Mt Whitestone, Ma Ma Creek, Winwill, Veradilla, Ropeley, and Mt Sylvia.

Vegetable hampers and boxes filled with goodies were donated and distributed to families following the Church’s harvest service. 

The service was joined by visiting Toowoomba Male Voice Choir who complemented each hamper with a financial donation.

Ma Ma Creek Church of Christ, church elder Peter Metcalf was grateful for the generous donations and gave thanks to those in the church community for their coordinated effort to produce and distribute the hampers to select local farmers and families.

“As a church we saw the need in our local area to reach out to those who were suffering from the severe drought conditions,” Mr Metcalf said. 

The care packages and generous donations were received by grateful hands and allowed members of the community to come together and support each other during trying times.  

Ma Ma Creek Church of Christ will be holding a follow-up community service of worship and prayer at 9am on Sunday 8 September.
