Join us Sunday, April 8, for “Change for Change”

Join us this Sunday, April 8, as the youth lead us in “Change for Change”.

The youth will be meeting at 9 a.m. to set up for food packaging and prepare for leading worship.

Thanks to the congregation’s generosity, we have raised more than $1,500 for this special project.

Worship will begin at regular time 10:15 am.

Following a brief message from Rick McNary of the Outreach Program, the congregation will assist with food packaging to help feed those in need wherever the need may be.

Dress casually and plan to join us!

(Below are photos from a similar food packaging event in August, facilitated by one of our youth members.)
