This event is free and open to anyone who would like to join us. However, we need to know who is going as it is a ticketed event. You can make a reservation by calling Beth or Roy Quist at (804)266-3164 or the Church Office at (804)262-8651. On July 18th, Rev. Joe Frazier will join us to give an update on the Stepping Stones school which is going well. August 15th, we will meet for lunch and …. on September 19th, Patti Dean from Life Net Health will speak with us about organ donation. This is a very important subject for everyone. Please spread the word and bring your friends. Everyone is invited to join us for any of our programs. It is helpful to have an idea of how many plan to attend so we have enough food.

FOOD PANTRY

Our food pantry needs your help. If you are able to lift cartons of canned goods and cartons of beans and pasta, we need you to help bring food from outside of the building into the food pantry on Wednesday, June 12. This is our monthly USDA delivery. It will arrive between 8 and 8:30 AM and is unusually large (16,208 pounds). Also, we can use volunteers to help greet our clients or to be trained to register guests on a laptop computer. Please contact the church office, Horace Ford, Sam Wilkinson or Joyce Roberts if you can help with any of these needs. As always, we also need paper grocery bags with handles and plastic bags. Please leave these outside of the food pantry door (Burchette Room) on the first floor as you come in from the parking lot. Thank you for your support of our food pantry.
