We are requesting that each Sunday, our families bring in non-perishable food items (cereal, soup, etc.) for our local food bank.  This summer, the Food Bank is in need of peanut butter, spaghetti sauce and toilet paper.  Egg cartons are needed to re-package bulk eggs for the families.  

All donations will be brought up to the altar and blessed prior to being delivered to the Glade Valley Food Bank.

deeper, Spirit-driven life that he desires for his people.
