Operation Inasmuch

On Saturday, April 16, you are invited to serve our congregation and our community during Operation Inasmuch, our annual spring day of ministry. Operation Inasmuch draws its name from Jesus' words in Matthew 25:40 - "Truly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to the least of these, you did it to me." Six projects have been planned - four in the morning and two in the afternoon. Sign up sheets are posted on the bulletin board near the parlor; the deadline for signing up is April 13. Childcare is available for preschoolers by reservation only; contact Pastor Tambi at tswiney@ibcnashville.org.
