Backpack Buddy program at Carver and Food Pantry
The Backpack Buddy program provides weekend meals for kids at Carver Elementary. We need canned vegetables, snack items, breakfast bars, and small packages of cereal/oatmeal. There is an immediate need for protein items (peanut butter, tuna, meatballs, viennas) as well as soups, fruit, popcorn, and sweet snacks. We are up to 40 children needing assistance. The Food Pantry is an on-going project supplying bags of groceries to needy families in our area. Non-perishable foods are needed. Please bring food for the Backpack Buddies and Food Pantry on communion Sundays as a response to Christ's love for us.
Saying Goodbye and looking to the future!
With heavy hearts (but a better sense of who we are) we say good bye to Pastor Debbie Osterhoudt as she completes her time with us as Interim Pastor and answers a call to work with the congregation of Peace Presbyterian in Greenville, NC. Debbie began her ministry with us in August of 2017 with a goal of helping us complete a Mission Study (including a congregation-
wide survey) so the search for a new installed pastor could begin. Debbie has
worked with the Session, the congregation, and the Pastor Nominating
Committee as the search narrows for our next installed pastor. We will
particularly miss her love of bible study and sharing God's word as well as her
understanding of Presbyterian doctrine. Debbie's last Sunday with us will be
November 17. For the remaining time until our next installed pastor is called,
the Presbytery of New Hope's Commission on Ministry will recommend
someone to serve as our "Bridge Interim". We look forward to working with
this person to continue our ministry in this community and the world.
Traveling mercies, Debbie!
