We continue our monthly collection of items for our local food pantry. For the month of July, we are collecting Ramen noodles. Upcoming collections will be: August: pudding cups; September: instant potatoes; October: instant pudding mix and November: personal care products such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo and deodorant. You may bring the items any Sunday morning during our worship service. We thank you in advance.
School has been out for almost two months and the Backpack program is on hold until school resumes. During summer we have been involved in a similar program which packs food items to be given to children who are participating in the Jersey Shore Summer Recreation Program. The summer rec program offers kids a place to go during the summer to learn, play and participate in fun activities.
It will soon be time to embark on our annual trip to Mission Central in Mechanicsburg, PA. This day of service is scheduled for July 19th. We look forward to this trip every year and are blessed to take part in assembling various kits such as health kits, school kits and birthing kits that will be used all over the world.
Our next Blood Drive will take place on August 2nd in our social hall. We feel blessed that we can partner with the American Red Cross in helping with such a worthwhile cause. Please consider donating blood and do your part in helping to save lives.
