Announcements for Sunday, April 28, 2019
The annual Helping Hearts Fundraiser, to purchase organic local produce that we will donate to the Hopelink Shoreline Food Bank, will take place today after the service. Please join us for snacks, sweet treats and chai. The funds from this bake sale will purchase fresh vegetables to be given to the HopeLink Shoreline Food Bank for 20 weeks this summer. The produce that the food bank receives from Helsing Junction Farms is repackaged and distributed and serves 20-25 families a month. Our goal is to raise $1,560. Thank you in advance for your generosity to the people in our neighboring community.
