Lend A Helping Can!
The Awana program is Lending A Helping Can! Between now and November 19, we would like to collect at least 500 cans of food to help Faith In Action. Collection baskets are in the front foyer and Awana clubbers and leaders will be bringing cans each Wednesday. Together we can Lend A Helping Can to many families and extend the love of Christ in our community. Faith In Action appreciates all canned food donations. At this time of year, they are especially in need of meats, fruit, soup, green veggies and other veggies.

Evaluations for Upward Basketball will be held Tuesday, December 2 and Thursday, December 4 from 5 – 8 P.M. and Saturday, December 6 from 8 A.M. – 1 P.M. This is the first step in signing up and is available for all kids between K – 5th grade. The evaluations only take 15 minutes so pick a time convenient for your family and get ready for an exciting season!
