Food Pantry Needs

  Children look forward to Summertime each year.               Unfortunately, some families struggle to feed their children during the summer months. This is usually our busiest time of helping families in need. Our food pantry is in need of more non-perishable items, such as canned goods, cereals, pasta, etc. If you feel led to donate, please place the bagged items in the pantry. Thanks for being His hands for our community!   

Women’s Bible Study
  
A new Bible study for ladies will begin on Sunday evenings beginning Sept. 9th. A Woman Overwhelmed  teaches about exchanging our overwhelming lives for God’s overwhelming love!

Workbooks can be purchased at Lifeway, at Christianbook.com, or ordered through the church office. A sign-up sheet has been placed on the Information Board for anyone interested in taking this journey with us.
