We are providing Easter meals to people in our community who are struggling financially. People can choose a bag of food that includes ham, potatoes, dinner rolls, corn, green

    beans, macaroni and cheese, fruit, butter, and cookies OR they can request individually packaged meals that can be heated up in a microwave.

    Here are ways that you can be involved in helping our church serve our community in Jesus’ name:

    1) Donate $35 for the purchase of everything included in the Easter Meal bag which will feed an entire family.

    2) Donate $12 for the purchase of a single-serve meal.

    3) Volunteer to help pack and distribute the bags and/or serve breakfast on Friday morning, April 7.

    4) Bake and donate cookies (chocolate chip, sugar, or oatmeal raisin— please no nuts) to be included in the bags.
