Soup for Seniors
Women on Mission are collecting food items for LOA’s Soup for Seniors drive. Winter is a difficult time for our older homebound neighbors. You can make a difference right here in our community by helping us collect the following:
• cans of soup
• canned meats such as tuna
• peanut butter
• canned fruit
• Carnation Instant Breakfast
(No glass containers, please.) We have a bin for donations in the foyer outside the church office. We will collect donations through February 5.
If our Sunday morning services or Wednesday night activities are cancelled due to inclement weather, we will send out an email, post on Facebook and on the church website, and send the information to Channel 7 and 10. We may not necessarily follow the county school closings this year.
