M25 Collections

Monthly Collection - Second Sundays of every month

One of CGM’s primary ministries is M25. M25 stands for Matthew 25, reminding us to be the hands and feet of Jesus. How can we clothe, feed, love, and serve our partners and people within our community, like Jesus did.

M25 is a monthly collection based on the needs of our ministry partners. Each month, the items collected and organization will change. M25 collections are held on the second Sunday each month. We collect items on the east side drop off zone before and after each service. The items collected will be delivered Monday or Tuesday the following week.

M25 is just one of the ways we are trying to mobilize being the best friend our community has.
