Our week to assist with Family Promise starts this Sunday, October 15, and runs through next Saturday night, October 21st. As you may recall, we are responsible for providing snacks and drinks for the families all week as well as the dinner meal, evening, and overnight hosting on Friday and Saturday nights.
This time one of the children has some serious food allergies so if you prefer to donate food instead of a cash donation, please be vigilant when making your purchases. More details about what foods are appropriate will be posted as soon as possible.
Thank you all for your support and answering the call to serve others; the families appreciate your kindness and care!
LATEST INFO UPDATE: PLEASE READ!
We are assisting by providing snacks and drinks (bottled water/soy milk/100% fruit juice) for the whole week as well as dinner meal, evening and overnight hosting on Friday 10/20 and Saturday 10/21. Snacks and drinks are delivered on Sunday afternoon 10/15.
Cash donations can be given on Sunday morning, 10/15, and if you’d like to donate food please leave it in the box on the table by the door in the Celebration Hall. Please note coupons are also a wonderful way to help out, and they can be dropped off at the church or you can give them to Sandra at church on Sunday.
