GIVING TEAM FOOD PANTRY CHALLENGE!
-The Giving Team is issuing a challenge to the Congregation! The challenge is to collect ONE TON of non-perishable food items for the Lexington Food Pantry by December 31, 2018! Food may be dropped off in the grocery cart in the narthex and will be weighed and recorded by the Giving Team. Look for more information and updates as time goes by! VBS collected almost 700 lbs in one week—what can we do in 4 months!?!
UPDATE: The Giving Team took 180 pounds of food to the Lexington Food Pantry in September. Keep donating folks — we still have 1,820 pounds to go to reach 1 ton of food by December 31!

The theme for the Stewardship Campaign this year is Share the Bounty. The Stewardship Dinner will be held on Sunday, November 18th following worship.
