The Blessing Box has been re-opened! Mission & Outreach have some funds to purchase items, but several people have asked what or how they can donate to the Blessing Box.
The storage closet off the East Room has been cleaned out and re-organized. If you have any non-perishable goods you wish to donate, please leave them outside the storage closet, on the pew.
We'll sanitize them, and re-stock. Right now, needed items include toothpaste, peanut butter & jelly, boxed macaroni & cheese, shampoo, & cereal. If you have any questions, contact the office or Carole Sue.
Snacks for Students
Locals churches are providing snacks for Orange Elementary School students on Friday afternoons. You can donate money to be used for the purchase of snacks. Checks can be made out to Orange Elementary School with “Friday snack” in the memo. Pastor Rebekah will donations to the school on Thursday afternoons.
* No longer accepting food items, monetary donations only
As part of our Matthew 25 commitment, we continue using the Blessing Box. Your contributions are welcome. Please fill the Blessing Box or leave items in the narthex.
There are other opportunities to feed our neighbors. The Love Outreach Food Pantry always welcomes contributions and help. We are also exploring how to partner with existing ministries in town. One idea is to help host a weekly meal at the Church of the Nazarene for the elderly. Keep an eye on your bulletins and future newsletters for information to come!
The Blessing Line project has been extended through February. Many items have been taken, showing that there is a need for this project in our town! We continue to accept hats, scarves, and gloves. There is a basket in the East Room for new or gently used donations.
Our Blessing Box, also a Matthew 25 project, is being used regularly as well. It needs to be restocked several times a week. Families need all kinds of things, including non-perishable foods, toiletries, and Tylenol. We would love your help restocking our closet. Look in the narthex for a basket in which to place your donations.
