Next Week’s Highlights
Church Work Day

We will work inside the building and outside to spruce up our facilities for summer.

Youth Valet Car Wash
Sunday, June 2 starting at 9 am and continuing through worship.
You will give your key to an adult who will drive and park your car so the youth can wash it while you are inside. All donations to this fundraiser will be appreciated.


Coming Soon!
Sack Summer Hunger
Saturdays, June 8 – August 3
9 am to noon
During the school year, many of the children in our community benefit from the free/reduced lunch program which provides them with breakfast and lunch for free or at a reduced cost. However, when school is out for the summer, the program is not available. We partner with Metrocrest (Social Services) to bridge this gap with the Sack Summer Hunger program. The program provides breakfast, lunch and snacks for school-aged children throughout the summer. The families receive a sack of food for each school-aged child in their household. Each Saturday during the summer, they can either pick up the bags from the church or have them delivered to their homes. Volunteers are needed to help make this program successful. There are sign-up sheets in the Narthex for delivery drivers, distribution at church, and to help pick up the food from Metrocrest. The biggest need right now is the delivery drivers and produce pick-up from Metrocrest. You do not have to commit to do every Saturday. You just sign up for the Saturdays that you are available. Please help us to continue our mission to serve the kids in our community. If you have questions, please see Ashley Norris.
