SHARING OUR PANTRY: "Food on the 15th" July Edition

Hi All,

Thanks for all of your help last month with our Sharing Our Pantry food deliveries to senior citizens at Morningside Park Apartments in Jessup, Maryland. Your help is such a vivid reminder of God's loving care and tender mercies. We are again going to have the pleasure of sorting, bagging and delivering groceries this summer on July 18th, and August 22nd.

On Sabbath, July 18th, we will sort, bag and deliver groceries after first service. We can use the multipurpose room which gives us easy access to cars outside. We should have plenty of food available, and most of the groceries for the diabetics already sorted.

Please let me know if you are available right after delivery for a potluck picnic. (Delivering food to others always makes us hungry!) I will identify a local park, with a gazebo/shelter, that we can use for fellowship. If the weather does not cooperate, we can have potluck at my house. I may have us try the Avalon or Orange Grove areas of Patapsco Park (close to where we picnicked last month). I will send out a map and info next week to tell you our potluck location.

Thanks so much for your commitment to help others, and helping show the face of Christ to the seniors. Please give me a call at 301-854-3889 or e-mail me if you have any questions or need further info. We will have about 45 bags of groceries to deliver, and should have some grocery store gift cards available,too.

God bless you, and thanks so much for your support,

Angie Bernard
