Mission Opportunity - Rice Donations Needed

During the month of March, we will be collecting 2 – 5 pound bags of white rice to
deliver to Riverton Park United Methodist Church. Each month we will add to our
monetary donation with an item that they are regularly in need of, as they work to
support those staying at their church. Drop off your donation in the box in the
narthex.
Thanks in advance for your participation in our support of our sister congregation.
Thank you, also, Dianne and Mike, for volunteering to deliver our donation each
month!
