Next Week’s Highlights

“Who Is Our Neighbor?” Panel Discussion on Food Insecurity April 29

On April 29th during the Sunday School hour, Advocates for Justice and Peace and the Food Pantry will be presenting another program in the series, “Who Is Our Neighbor.” This program will be a panel discussion on Food Insecurity. Representatives from the North Texas Food Bank, the Metrocrest, Austin Street, and Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD will be participating in the panel to discuss Food Insecurity in our community. Also, on April 29th, the Food Pantry will open its doors for an open house. We’ve recently completed some renovations and would love for everyone to come in and take a look around after the 8:30 and 11:00 services. There will be refreshments and opportunities to volunteer.
