in the world, in America, and in Ohio.
At Saint Matthew Lutheran Church in Logan, Ohio, on Sunday, November 29, worshipers at the 10:15 service are encouraged to bring their offerings of nonperishable food items. They will be taken to the CHAP emergency food bank, providing food relief for area households.
This is a tremendous--and extremely important--way for us to share the love of Jesus Christ with our neighbors!
In 2009, in addition to our support for CHAP, Saint Matthew has had several new initiatives on behalf of our neighbors in need. There was our PSST food drive in which we left bags on the front porches of our neighbors, then picked them up, and gave the collected items to the county Job and Family Services agency. Later, we worked with the local Developmental Disabilities agency and County health department with our drive-through baby shower, collecting diapers and infant formula.
In 2010, we hope to serve our neighbors in need in more ways. May God bless us with active imaginations and deep commitment to Jesus as we find new ways to love others!
