Rise Against Hunger Meal Packing: Service Sunday

April 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness,
and the darkness around you will be as bright as the noon.
Isaiah 58:10

Our Lenten Offering this year will underwrite one of First Church’s favorite events… the
meal packing event for Rise Against Hunger!

We will pack 20,000 meals to support Rise Against Hunger’s simple vision of a world
without hunger. Rise Against Hunger distributes meals in 38 countries to schools, health
clinics and communities hit by disaster. The meals help keep children in school and aid
communities in the short term as they develop long term food security.
Please join us for a fun, energized, music filled morning when we will experience the joy of
working together to help the least among us!
No need to register.
Families are welcome.
Bring friends to show them First Church in action!
We will be underwriting the cost of the 20,000 meals as our Lenten Offering this year.
NOTE: There is NO worship service this day.
Baseball hats are welcome instead of a hairnet; no bracelets or rings other than wedding bands…. we don’t want you to lose anything!
Please consider a Lenten Gift toward underwriting the cost of meals – every donation makes a difference! You may donate here. (Select Rise Against Hunger as the donation category)
