ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL - We will be starting a second Adult Sunday School class on February 25 led by Sean Meade. We will be reading the new biography 'Martin Luther' written by Eric Metaxas. (Metaxas is the author of the Bonhoeffer biography from our previous popular study.) People who will not be reading the book are free to join us, but we will focus on the book in our discussion. The class will meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15 in the youth room. Please consider getting a copy of the book and joining us.

PLEASE SAVE YOUR PLASTIC BAGS - Turn them into the Snack Pack boxes in the narthex. We need them for packing up the Snack Packs each week. Please see below for additional information about our Snack Pack Ministry. Thank you!

 

WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT SNACK PACKS?

Did you know there are many children in our community who go home on the weekends to no food in the fridge or the pantry?

Did you know that children who are hungry when they arrive at school are not able to perform the way children who are well fed do?

Did you know that Snack Packs are given to children before they go home for the weekend so that they have something to hold them over until Monday?

Did you know that frequently the items in a Snack Pack are the only thing that child has to eat ALL WEEKEND, and possibly the only thing the child's family members will have as well?

Snack Packs by the Numbers: The Outreach Team at CVLC is currently packing 42 Snack Packs a week for middle and high school age children in our community! Each Snack Pack has 16 non perishable, easy to make items in it, totaling $4.59 per bag, or $192.78 per week. 100% of your monetary donations and donations of food items go directly into the Snack Packs.

Thank you for your support of the Snack Pack ministry!
