Thanksgiving Food Drive


The Board of Missions & Evangelism is once again asking ALL church ministries to contribute baskets for our anual Thanksgiving Food Drive.

The Women's Ministry has also asked its members to sign up for a food item after church services in the front and back lobbies to ensure that donations make up complete baskets. Donations are need by Sunday, Nov. 17.

All donors received a FREE OneBlood fleece blanket and a wellness checkup that includes blood pressure, temperature, iron count, pulse and cholesterol screening!

We'll see you next time!
