Rise Against Hunger Meal Packing 2022

Each year, the congregation has a financial appeal and also a service appeal for Rise Against Hunger, on our “God’s Work; Our Hands” Sunday, after Labor Day. We raise money to buy the dry ingredients in bulk, which will then be packed on the Saturday, into individual bags for shipment throughout the world – wherever the need is greatest. This year, 2022, we raised $6726.00 and had 65 helpers gathered from church members, friends and family, both elder and younger folks, to spend time on Saturday September 10, to pack over 15,000 meals, to be shipped mainly overseas. This is a photo record of what was happening. On Sunday, we gave thanks during worship, and the congregation gathered afterwards for a congregational photo.
