DEACONS SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM
Although it seems like spring took a long time in arriving, be on the lookout for our own tree sprouting up in church. Starting April 21st the Deacons will once again have their school lunch program giving tree set up. Please help out if you can and pick one of the many tags that are budding on the tree. This program helps to provide funding to give a hot lunch at school to children in need. In some cases, this may well be the only hot
meal that the children get each day. Thank you for your support of this worthy cause.
