As promised, here is our first “ask” for the March Food Drive sponsored by RE and benefiting the Maltby Food Bank. Please bring your favorite canned food to church this Sunday.
Alison Bush is doing a wonderful job weaving lessons around food insecurity, compassion, and social justice into the RE classroom during this food drive. Last Sunday I heard her asking the kids to say their favorite food. She then said, “I’m sorry, we don’t have that but we have a can of corn (or beans, tuna, etc.) so you won’t be hungry.” The kids learned that not everyone has access or the means to eat whatever they want, when they want. It made a huge impression on me.
There will be a purple basket in the foyer to collect your items. Thank you for your support each Sunday. We appreciate all you can do!
