Because all Americans should be able to celebrate
Independence Day with food on their tables.
In the past we have collected food for less fortunate families
during the Thanksgiving or Christmas seasons. Other community groups do
the same. Our church, however, recognized that needy families are often
forgotten during the summer months. So in 2012 we decided to do something
about it. We plan on doing it again this summer (2014).
On each of the five weeks before Independence Day we will collect
a different kind of food. We'll bag it up and take it to local families
who might otherwise have to do without. We want to provide a traditional
July 4th menu, as well as food for other days of the week.

Bring your food with you to worship each Sunday. Or drop
it off during the week. We will have a designated drop-off location in
the sanctuary narthex and near the bulletin board in the hallway next to the
secretarys office. Make sure any food you put in the refrigerator
for this project is clearly marked Food for the
