 Outreach News

Food Pantry - At our Easter distribution we served 46 families totaling 171 people, 54 of whom were children under the age of 18. Thank you to volunteers who donated money toward the purchase of hams, unloaded and shelved groceries, set up bags, bagged the groceries, bought eggs and milk, did clerical work, and helped with the distribution. Working together, with God's help, we can do marvelous things!
