“Be generous and share your food with the poor; you will be blessed for it.”
Please don’t forget to bring your cans and other nonperishable food items every Sunday to help make someone else’s life a little more comfortable, and to shine the light of God’s love into lives in crisis. So far this year in canned food donations – we have not yet reached capacity of the food needs of our local Otsego County Food Bank.
We have plastic bucket for food below our mail boxes
in the office area.
Can you help?
Thanks for being a blessing to those in need.
