Food Drive Challenge The Sunday School students and staff along with the Sunday Morning Adult Bible Class are being challenged to donate 175 pounds of nonperishable food to our local food banks. Food will be collected in plastic totes inside church doors. If challenge is met by May 12, then a celebration breakfast for all those that donated food will be served in the Fellowship Center on Sunday May 19, between the morning services. Thanks for participating.
