Food Boxes

December 10, 2023

The Backpack Ministry needs your help. St. John and Redeemer are providing Christmas food boxes for 18 Minnick School students (St. John is responsible for 9 boxes)--they need the congregation's help--the cost per box is about $65--if you agree to provide a box, you will need to purchase all items on the list and put them in a box to bring to the Fellowship Hall by Sunday Dec. 10th. Please let us know as soon as possible if you would be willing to provide a box (2 or more people could join together to do this also).
