Youth Readers Needed
We'd like to involve the children more in worship by having them read the Prayer of the Day before the Children's Sermon. If your child would like to read, please sign up on the bulletin board in the narthex.
The Brandywine School District is starting a program to send home backpacks of food over the weekend for children in the free and reduced meal program. We've been asked to provide individual MICROWAVALBE servings of spaghetti and meatballs (microwavable 7.5 oz cups), mac and cheese (microwavable cups) and individual soups (microwavable, any variety). Powdered milk, oatmeal cups and individual cereal cup are also being collected. The brand is not important, just the size and the micorwavableness. No child should be hungry, and this is one way to help. Thanks!
We have been given an updated list of items needed to pack backpacks for next month:
Microwavable vegetables (single serving)
Snack Pack pudding
Canned meat (single serving)
Chicken Rice a Roni
Mac and Cheese (single serving)
Soup (single serving)
Cereal boxes (single serving)
Horizon 8 fl. oz. milk
Thank you for your continued support of this program!
