BETTYS BABIES

The gift of formula from "Betty's Babies" is gratefully received! Thank you so much for thinking of the abandoned babies in Ethiopia that God has assigned to our care. Formula means the difference between a struggling child and a bright, robust child. Thank you SO MUCH! Joy Casey, Adoption Ministry of YWAM.

FOOD CLOSET

The Food Closet is open the Friday following the third Tuesday every month. Donations of canned items, personal hygiene products, and household cleaning items are always appreciated. If you would care to donate any of these items, they can be left in the kitchen or call us and we will arrange to get them from you.

We can't thank the members of this congregation enough for their continued generosity and their donations of food and funds for the Food Closet, and we so appreciate our many faithful and hard-working volunteers. The Lord has truly blessed this ministry.

CASH FOR CANS

Two members of our church family are collecting and redeeming aluminum cans and California redemption value plastic bottles and giving proceeds to GEFC. If you'd like to make donations contact Mike Buckley or Dick Faux (phone numbers available via the church office). You can drop items at their homes.

We are not collecting these items at the church, but if you wish to make a vehicle-to-vehicle transfer on Sunday morning, call Mike ahead and time and set up an appointment.
