You are TEE-rrific!
Thank you to the 38 volunteers who joined us for dinner on Wednesday evening. We were glad to serve you and share in some fellowship. Lamar shared the pantry’s annual report and some cooking class footage with the group which we will be sharing with you all soon. Here are some photos from Wednesday!
Heart to Heart Sunday
Thank you to everyone who attended the Open House last weekend after Sunday worship services. We had sixteen guests visit the pantry. We are also grateful to the volunteers who helped last Sunday, including those who provided cookies for the worship hospitality tables.
News from “the shop downstairs”
As you know, we share the First Community Annex building with several other ministries of the church. Most notably, the Tri-Village Trading Post which occupies the bottom floor and is a constant source of support and community for us. Here is a message from their director, Rebecca Wolfe:
Each year Trading Post volunteers choose area organizations to gift with money for their programs. This year Choices and Huckleberry House were selected to each receive $5,000 from Trading Post. Choices is Franklin County’s only domestic violence shelter helping protect those who are in need of escape from their domestic situations. Huckleberry House helps youth ages 14-24 with issues facing them such as abuse, violence, neglect, poverty, and homelessness. Many of these youth are those who have aged out of the foster care system with no place to go.
In addition, Trading Post gave back over $6500 to First Community Mission Council for the sale of items gleaned from the Garage Sale. All this, and the church received $59,000 in support of general ministries and mission efforts.
Thanks to all who donate, volunteer and shop – we are making a difference at Trading Post.
And what does the Lord
require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly
with your God?
