Food Collection

The Missions Committee would like thank the congregation for its generosity during our Lenten Hunger Campaign.  The sad news is that the local food banks are still experiencing shortages due to high needs.  Requested items include peanut butter, canned meats such as tuna, dried pastas and sauces, canned pastas, and boxed macaroni and cheese. As you see these items on sale, please consider picking up a few to donate. The shopping cart near the front entrance will be the spot to drop them off. Thank you!

 

Pray For a Child!  Be a Prayer Buddy!

Because our babies, children, and youth are so special to us, we are beginning an opportunity for our congregation to be in special prayer for our children of all ages!  We need about 44 more people to sign up to pray for one child every day.  You will be assigned a child, and that child will also be asked to pray for you.

We are hoping you will “find one another”, call one another on the phone, or introduce yourselves at church and get to know something about each other.  This will make the children realize they are really cared about, and we will be blessed by knowing a child of God a little better!

We take a vow when children are baptized in our congregation to be mentors for them and care for them in their Christian walk.  This is an opportunity to do just that by becoming a “Prayer Buddy”.

If you are willing, please sign a prayer card with YOUR NAME and the words “I will pray” when in church. Then put the card in the offering plate OR you may email the church or Lorna at klbenson2261@charter.net,  and let us know you will be willing to pray.  You will be contacted with a name as soon as we get the names organized.  Thank you.       ~  Lorna B.
