Volunteers Needed!
W e are in need of volunteers for Thursdays, November 20, December 4, 11, & 18, and
January 8, 15, 22, & 29; and Saturdays, November 22; December 6, 13, & 20, and
January 10, 17, 24, & 31 in the Food Pantry. W e want to keep a minimum of five or
maximum of six per day. Please pray about this and let Tom Culverwell know that
you wish to help out. E-mail Tom at [email protected] or call his cell (904-2540063). This is a time of great uncertainly in His food pantry. There are changes afoot
to both the USDA program and the bulk purchase program. The food pantry depends
on these two programs for the bulk of the food distributed. W e are hearing a lot of
speculation, but nothing concrete at this time. Please pray the we will continue to be
stocked, and that we all have patience during this time of transition.

Help Needed at Trinity Food Pantry
Even if you can’t help on a regular basis, there are still things to be done in the food
pantry that don’t require a regular commitment of your time. For example, every
Monday we need help sorting and bagging a large shipment of bread and baked goods.
The 3-ring binders containing the USDA forms for each client frequently need
alphabetization and can be done sitting down. The food pantry needs periodic cleaning
and perhaps you can help with this. Please see Tom Culverwell if you can help in the
food pantry in any way. W e also desperately need paper and plastic bags, so please
save yours and bring them to the church whenever you can. Remember it is God’s
food pantry, and we all love to serve God, don’t we?
Thank You Coffee Hosts

worship today. Next week’s coffee hour host will be Elenore Kripps, Betsy Lyerly and
