Holiday  Food  Drive

It is time for our annual food drive! We will begin to intentionally gather food on November 9.   Using the list below,  put the day's item in a box and pray for the family that will receive the food.  Get the kiddos involved by letting them:

  • remove the food from your pantry and placing it in the box each day
  • decorate the collection box
  • write Bible verses or references on the can tops or boxes
  • lead in the prayers
  • help with the shopping

The Reverse Advent will finish up on December 2nd.  That will give us plenty of time bring the food to the church before the December Hand N Hand Food Pantry.   Bring your box to church with you and leave it in the Welcome Center or let us know if you need someone to come pick it up. 

The food pantry team could always use a hand, so if you would like to volunteer with the food pantry, send your information and we will pass it along.
