FROM THE MISSIONS TEAM:
The Missions Team is excited to announce our newest project. A huge thank you to Katie Simenson for coordinating this project, and Fenton Harder for constructing and donating this beautiful Community Blessing Box. In the near future, our Blessing Box will be placed outside of the church and is for all to use. It is our hope that the donated items will be used by everyone in the community. This box will be for those less fortunate as well as a helping hand for anyone who can use our goods. We will extend an invitation to the children’s center families to feel free to help themselves to our Blessing Box if they have a need. It is our hope this will serve the entire community. A wish list of items for the Blessing Box is in May’s Epistle. Thank you once again for your support.
The peanut butter and jelly (PB & J) collection will run the entire month of May. There will be a table set up in the parlor for this collection.
