SILENCE
There always seems to be noise – demanding, harsh, constant noise. With full calendars, robocalls and people always demanding something, peace is at a premium. Maybe a little silence is just what we need…

That’s the subject of GraceNotes this week… Read this blog and subscribe to new posts on the Grace Notes blog page here!
Holy Trinity Food Pantry
The Holy Trinity Food Pantry is in need of the following items:
  • Laundry detergent & feminine hygiene products
  • Canned soups (any variety)
  • Recently purchased ground beef, chicken or other mainstay meats that are in 1-2 pound packages and have an easy-to-read date on them. Take them directly to the freezer in the Fellowship Hall, next to the Hearty Blessings freezer. 
Please continue your generous support.  Credit/debit card donations can be placed at the Giving Station located in the Narthex.  Your monetary, food and personal care gifts are an outreach of God's love to the Ankeny community.

Remember: while we do depend on the generosity of members to supply the pantry’s needs, our food pantry is also available to any members who need help. We all need a hand sometimes.
