THE “BACKPACK PROGRAM” is sponsored by the

our community. We furnish 10 bags each week to Sandhill
Elementary. If you’d like to help by providing individual readyto-eat items (pudding/jello/fruit cups, cheese crackers, poptarts, grits, oatmeal, juice boxes, cereal cups/bars, etc.), you
may either bring these items to the church office, or leave them
in the Messenger’s Classroom in the FLC.

Sunday morning.

FOOD PANTRY DRIVE – The “Item of the Month” for our
Food Pantry for January is peanut butter and jelly. There is a
