Please Help Provide College Care Package Donations! College Care Packages are being assembled on Sunday, October 29th. This is one way our college students, many who live far away from home, are reminded that their church remembers them in thoughts and prayers. Donations of treats, snack foods and cookies will be collected. Please look for the College Care Package Donation Container in the Church Narthex. 36 College Packages were assembled in October 2016! Questions? Contact Roger.
College Student Current Address Updates! Please forward your college student (‘s) current address to Roger or the church office by Sunday, October 22nd, so that your student (‘s) can be included in the College Care Package shipment. Please join the effort and help spread some JOY! “Not everyone has a student in college, but anyone can help provide a college student with a Care Package!”
