FILL THE TRUCKS

"FILL THE TRUCKS"

On Sunday, November 19th, we will be collecting food donations for the United Church Ministries food pantry. We want to help fill the pantry at UCM for the holiday season. A very busy time for UCM to help those who are in need. It is through and by us that God feeds His children. So as we prepare to have our own feast that evening, let's be a blessing to our community and fill the trucks with food donations.




THANKSGIVING CELEBRATION

Sunday, November 19th at 6 pm we will have our Thanksgiving meal in the FLC, with everyone bringing enough food for a Thanksgiving feast!!
