Announcements for the week of March 8, 2015

PENNY WAR AGAINST HUNGER:  This year our Sunday School is raising money to support Orphan Grain Train, a Christian volunteer agency that supplies food and other items to those in need.  Over 97% of your donations go directly to providing food and other help for the poor.  We are hoping to raise enough money to help them supply at least 50,000 meals for those who are hungry.  If you wish to support our efforts, you can donate in your March special mission envelopes, the Penny War jar on the book nook, or by giving your spare change to any Sunday School student for their class bank.  Thank you for your generosity.

LOOSE CHANGE SUNDAY to support our Penny War Against Hunger is today!  If you wish to participate, we ask that you “lose” the change out of your pockets or purses onto the pew.  At the end of the service our Sunday School students will search for your donations and add it to their class banks.  Orphan Grain Train is able to supply 500 meals for the hungry for every $15 donated.  Your help with our project is appreciated.

SOCIAL MINISTRIES will meet after today’s service.  A light lunch will be served.  Please consider joining us.  New members are always welcome.

MISSION ENVELOPES FOR MARCH are designated to support Young Life.  Young Life is a local group supported by our church that provides opportunities for teens to get together, socialize in a Christian environment, participate in Bible studies, camps, and other fun activities as well as service projects.  It has had a positive influence on the lives of many teens in our area.  Dick Crawford has been involved with Young Life for many years and would be glad to answer any questions you may have.  If you wish to support Young Life, please place your mission envelope in the offering plate before the end of February.

THANK YOU – Beverly Mills would like to thank everyone for their cards and prayers during George’s illness.

ATTN YOUTH FOR TRUTH – There is a meeting scheduled for next Sunday after the worship service.
