First Presbyterian Church


We prepared “Blessing Bags” containing different items for clients of our local food bank.  For families, we included items for the children (colouring books and crayons, bubbles, hard candy, personal care items).  For singles, couples and seniors, we made up bags with personal care items, candy, and so forth.  Each bag contained a handwritten postcard from our church letting the recipient know that we are thinking about them and praying for them, and if they would like additional pastoral care, to contact us.  We consulted with our local food bank and they gave us suggestions for items to include in the bags. The Food Bank distributed the bags to their clients on our behalf.

We also asked folks in our congregation to pray for all who were blessed by the Big Give on June 6th.
