Announcement – 4/29/20

Details are available below.

Dear Friends,

We have a great opportunity to serve our community in this difficult season. God has richly provided us with donations of non-perishable food items during the last several weeks, and on Saturday, May 16, we will be hosting a Drive-Thru Food Pantry at New Life Church from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. We will be giving away non-perishable groceries and household supplies. The Village Church from Churchville will be partnering with us in this project.

We are asking for your help. Please consider supporting this ministry in the following ways:

  • Pray – We ask that you be in prayer for our neighbors who are in need. We want to show them God’s love in a tangible way in the hope that they come to know him.
  • Donate – We are collecting bottles of laundry detergent. We will also accept any other grocery items that you are willing to give, either newly-purchased or unopened extras that you have around the house. Please bring all donations to the church by Sunday, May 10.
  • Serve – We will need help organizing and distributing items as well as directing traffic on the day of the event. We are limited by the current social distancing guidelines. If we have a large number of people who wish to help, we may have to schedule volunteers in the appropriate numbers. Please be in touch with Pastor Brandon if you would like to help. The times and dates are below:
    • Prep* – Wednesday, May 6, 6:30 pm
    • Prep* – Wednesday, May 13, 6:30 pm

    • {Severe weather date: Sunday, May 17, 1:00 pm – 5:30pm (open 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm)}

*Due to the nature of the work on these dates, we need several volunteers who have a general knowledge of grocery prices.

Blessings!

Pastor Brandon
