We were happy to serve at the Ecumenical Food Kitchen at First Presbyterian, CDA, on Jun 24. Thank you for donations of food and dollars, and to coordinator, Marge Freligh, for this community outreach event. A tasty hot lunch was served indoors to approximately 32 of our neighbors. We’ll serve again in September!

Maren Snyders has coordinated with our Family Promise ministry partners, and we are scheduled to physically host FP guest two more weeks this year: Sep 19-25 and Dec 5-11. We look forward again to making our guests comfortable at our church and extending a warm welcome after a year of hotel living and fast food.

Someone in the congregation takes OCC Shoeboxes very seriously and already has 31 boxes fully packed and two more in progress! I bet you can guess who this is! Why not start your own Christmas in July by collecting fun and useful things to pack in your Shoebox for later this year (Oct 17 kickoff!)? Watch for sales and get the deals – joyful packing!
