Farm Fresh receipt collection.....

Each year, we partner up with Achilles Elementary School for this program.  Based upon the total of your purchase, Farm Fresh will make a donation to support their programs.

  We have advanced into the "Digital World!"  Check with Ann Hogge and get your "Little Plastic Tag." Then let the cashier scan your tag and presto we get credit.

Food Closet Donations...

We have joined up with Union Baptist Church to provide food assistance to the people of Gloucester County.

   Non-perishable food items may be placed in the box in the vestibule. Monetary donation by check made out to Union Baptist Church.  Just write "Food Closet" on the remarks line of the check.  (For each $.18 that is received, Union Baptist can purchase one can of food from the Peninsula Food Bank.)

Their food closet is open each Monday and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the building to the rear of the church parking lot.

   This "Outreach Program" is made possible by the generous donations received from the community and dedicated volunteers who give freely of their energy, time and talents!

    Organizational Meetings....

 

***********

Our Session meets on the first Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. the Fellowship Hall.

If you have any concerns, questions or issues that you feel need to be brought before the Session, you may pass them to any of the Elders and they will see that it gets to the proper person and attention of the Session.
