Food Pantry Sunday ~ As we are fed at Christ’s table, so we seek to feed others. This Sunday will be the collection of non-perishable foods for All Faiths Food Bank.

There will be a basket in the narthex labeled ALL FAITHS FOOD BANK. Please place your items in the basket or next to it if the basket is full. If you have any questions, please contact Ellen Marsey, co-chair of the Food and Hunger Group.
