Lenten Food Collection

Each year during Lent our church gathers non-perishable food items for our food pantry. This food is made available to anyone who requests assistance, anyone who needs a helping hand to put food on their table.

During this period of preparation for Easter called Lent, we often consider giving up some delicacy to remind ourselves of our need to return to closeness with God. But God tells us that he does not "need" our sacrifices. He desires that we show kindness and consideration to those in need, that we "do justice".

So we invite you to participate in this "fast" of giving to others. The food hampers will be available in the church foyer for your donations. Look for the large plastic tubs and if you need help locating them, ask Alecia, Linea or Phil or Pastor Randall.
