For years our faith community has supported Helpline, our local food bank, with our donations. An average of 200 pounds were received annually.
To build on this ministry, in the fall of 2016 we became more focused with our giving and began doing “Food on the First.” In just three years we have gathered over 3 tons of food and toiletries! Thanks be to God!!
People are invited to take home a designated bag, put one, two or more food items in it (there’s a shopping list of suggestions available), and bring it to church by the first Sunday of the month. Bags are placed in the chancel area and blessed during worship. Donations are then taken to Helpline during the week.
Our next “Food on the First” blessing will be Sunday, Feb. 2 – your bag of donations may be brought anytime and placed in the Helpline area of the church entrance area.
Thank you for your generosity!
