We also really need volunteers! PACKERS (Thursday’s) and DELIVERERS (Fridays)
We are providing healthy snacks for the weekend for kids at school. At this time we provide 32 bags every Friday. Donations of healthy snacks or money are welcome.
Do folks need ID for this like the food pantry?
No, it open to anyone who would like to stop by!! You may bring items to share to take as you need. 🙂
Pastor Toby, John Hochstetler with Gideons International. Just wanted to say hello and let you know we are praying for you and your church. If there are any special requests please send them to me at my email and we will pray for you. Just a reminder that we are still planning the pastor’s appreciation banquet on Oct 15, 2020 at 12:00 noon. Hope to see you there.
In Christ’s Love,
For several years, my husband and I have been sharing our garden abundance. We are not members of your church and have relied on the sign to let us know when you are doing your care and share. I understand due to covid-19, things have changed. However, my husband’s green thumb has not. If you are not doing the usual care and share but know of a way for us to continue to share, please e-mail me. Thank you Ann
We are getting ready to get the market started. I am waiting on the reply for the date. I am assuming that it will be Monday the 27th.
Yes it will be Monday the 27th 🙂
