The Cash In The Plate For Today Goes To Rise Against Hunger.

In support of our packing event, today’s offering will go to support Rise Against Hunger. We at Good Sam know the impact Rise Against Hunger has in feeding hungry souls around the world. What we think of as a fun, laugh out loud, hairnet wearing, gong banging, meal packing, visit with our friends in Henslee Hall becomes tasty, nutritious meals for adults and children. These lifesaving meals provide the nutrients needed for children’s brains to develop properly so they can learn in school and for adults to lead active, healthy lives so they can take care of their families. Please join us today in Henslee Hall after the 10:30 am service and help us pack meals.

Donations can be made by sending a check to Good Sam, specifying Rise Against Hunger.” in the memo line, or through Good Sam’s online giving portal by scanning the QR code on your announcement sheet.

Last week’s offering of $907.00 has been designated to go to Susannah’s House.
