Bags of Blessings

We've been collecting donations for our "Bags of Blessings" where a backpack is filled with food for children to take home on the weekends when food at their homes may be scarce. We have received a generous response as usual from our loving and giving church!

Yesterday in the morning service a teacher shared how these bags truly bring blessings to families. A student in her class receives a bag each week and the grandmother who raises the child along with 4 others, graciously shared how much this extra food means to them over the weekend when all the children are at home. She was very appreciative of the food and the generous, thoughtfulness behind the ministry.

May we be encouraged to pray for this ministry and for the families it will be impacting.  May they see and feel the love of God through this small act of blessing.
