"But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with (Jesus) Christ even when we were dead in
transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved."
(Ephesians 2:4-5)

Urgent Need! Extremely Urgent Need!

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

These are the shelves of our food pantry as of 5 pm Sunday Sept 18th. There is no cereal or breakfast foods. There is minimal soup, canned fruits and vegetables. This is hardly enough to sustain one individual. We have multiple families who rely on us to supplement what they are able to afford in order to feed their families!

We are in need of donations now more than ever before. If you can donate we need cereals and other breakfast foods (poptarts, bars, pancake mix and syrup), peanut butter and jelly, tuna fish, spam, canned soup, vegetables, fruits, tuna fish, tomato sauce, rice, and we need an outpouring of it! Monetary donations also accepted.

Please, if you can help us, we need you now more than ever.

Thank you

Matthew 25:40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

Donations Needed for Flood Victims

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

The recent flooding in Louisiana has left thousands of people homeless and has also contributed to a number of injuries and deaths. We as a church now have the opportunity to help out one family in particular.

Michael Gibney is a pastor affiliated with the Church of the Lutheran Brethren who just moved with his family to Baton Rouge. Their home was flooded by the recent heavy rainfall and they also lost their two cars. They have no insurance for their home because they are located in a no-flood zone, and—to top it all off—Mike’s wife’s grandfather recently passed away. Mike is also currently in the midst of a battle with cancer.

If you’d like to donate money to the Gibney Family, please make your checks payable to the church but write “Gibney Family” in the memo line. There is an offering plate at the back of the sanctuary. Please note that these donations will not be tax-deductible, since the money is going to one specific family.

Watch Mike’s video below for a firsthand look at the recovery efforts.
