MANNA Food Check Donation

On behalf of the church, the Growth/Outreach committee has sent a $400 check to Manna Foods to assist with the food crisis we are now experiencing due to the coronavirus and the unemployment fallout. Please continue to pray for all of those affected by this pandemic.

MANNA Food Drive- November 2019

During the month of November 2019, the Growth/Outreach Committee held a food drive to benefit the Manna Food Bank in Gaithersburg.  For three Sundays, we put 2 empty boxes at the back of the church in which to gather canned and non-perishable goods for this event.  The response was over whelming.  We collected over 153 lbs of food, and checks/cash amounting to $700.  What a fabulous outreach of love and support for this wonderful organization.

As pictured above, on November 18, 2019, Rev Linda Calkins & I delivered the food to the warehouse on Gaither Road.  We were met by Jamal (pictured above with me and Rev Linda), and given the quick tour of the facility.  Rev Linda and I are standing next to our bin of donated food in front of just 1 of many aisles of donated food by others.  On behalf of the Growth & Outreach Committee, I cannot thank all of you enough for your contributions!
