Sunday, January 6th Lunch Bag Activity

At our last Inside Out Sunday we put together almost 500 food bags. However, we will not have another Inside Out Sunday until the end of March. The food bags will run out in the middle of January. The JAMM budget has been cut and we do not have funds to fill more bags. So, we are sending this plea to you to help us fill more food bags. We use 45 bags each week and are aiming to fill 500 bags to last until the next Inside Out Sunday. That means we need your donations to fill these food bags.
We need 500 of each of the following:

·        Juice bags or boxes,
·        Fruit or pudding cups
·        Soft granola bars
·        Cheese or peanut butter crackers
·        Raisins

We will be filling the bags between services on Sunday January 6 , so let’s get the donations in. There will be a donation barrel in the back of the sanctuary for your convenience. We appreciate all the help you give to help feed the homeless and hungry.
Prayers & Thanksgivings
Gaye Gough , for all families whether together or separated by borders, distance, or feelings, may love cover us all; Morgan Cline , healing for Renee’s dad Butch who is in the hospital; Chris Gann, healing for Ryan and his son Henry who were seriously injured in a snow mobile accident; Cleo Mapfumo, for a blessed new year full of peace, love, and hope; for babies with heart issues; for a loved one healing from back surgery; for a loved one to have a safe pregnancy; for loved ones to find inner peace and let go of revenge; for those on hospice: Dick Riedman & Eric Rolston; for those going through cancer treatment; Mick Gough, Blake English , and many others… Gracious God, hear our prayers.
