ANNOUNCEMENTS:

 

 As we near the holiday, we need your help once again to support needy families with a Thanksgiving meal. This year we will be partnering with FAPC’s food pantry to both support those already being served by the pantry and those who cannot get to the pantry with a Thanksgiving meal. We are asking for monetary donations this year which we will both donate to the pantry and use to purchase items for a limited number of bags for giveaway. Please do not bring in food items this year. If you know a family that needs support and doesn’t visit the pantry, be sure to let Deacons Lynne Young or Andrea Keith know TODAY!! We will be distributing bags right after service (in the kitchen) Monetary donations also need to be turned in today.
