With so many people in need of food, our Manna Bags ministry continues to provide help in our community. Manna Bags are plastic bags containing some or all of the items listed below. Take one or more bags and keep them in your car or at home and give one to the person on the street corner asking for help or a person that God has placed in your path needing your help. During Advent, please bring any of the items listed to the church office between 9 am and 4 pm Monday through Friday or Sunday mornings.
