May 2017 Food Pantry News

Another exciting and busy month at the food pantry!  On April 2, the Vine Street Christian Church made their semiannual pilgrimage to our church.  They brought 11 wagons of groceries for the food pantry.  Then they joined us for a meal and fellowship.  We appreciate them supporting this project!

     On Thursday, April 6, Iris & Howard Ramsey and Marilyn Allison and I delivered 27 “Easter Goodie Boxes”  to seniors and shut-ins in our congregation.  This time Ruth Miller and Gaye Davis’s youth groups made individual Easter cards for each person.  The recipients enjoyed the talents of our young people.

     I would like to thank all the church members for donating items for a new family in town.  We were able to give them a couch, wing back chair, torchiere lamp, 2 twin mattresses with sheets, pillows and blankets,  pans & skillets, sheets, towels and blankets, dishes, mixing bowl set, silverware, glasses, many kitchen utensils, 2 pitchers, canister set, just to mention some things.  Kathy Oye is making or altering curtains for them.  Another couple is giving them a used washer & dryer set.  It is amazing what we can accomplish when we all join together doing God’s work!

     The pantry has been very busy and is in need of cereal,  canned fruit, fruit juice and hamburger  helper.  Thank you for supporting our outreach project.


More additions to our building!

It is hard to believe that our new addition is almost complete! The new floor has been put down in the dining hall, cabinets are up in the kitchen and the coffee bar is on its way to being complete… We also have a storage cabinet for our sound system and there are doors separating the sanctuary from the new building!
