The Blessing Box Needs

 

The Blessing Box provides food to more than 30 families monthly and is open three times each month, 9:30–10:30am on the first Saturday; and 6:00–7:00pm on the second and fourth Thursdays.  On-going food needs are canned meats, breakfast cereals, low sodium canned vegetables and soups, and low sugar canned fruits.  Consider holiday meal foods, too. Food donations can be delivered to the Pantry when open at the Elkhart Christian Church or be placed in the collection box near our Parish Office. Tax-deductible donations can be made payable to The Blessing Box, c/o Elkhart Christian Church, P.O. Box 97, Elkhart, IA 50073.  

Annual Diocesan Appeal 

This Appeal gives us the opportunity to act together as a Diocesan family and support programs and services no single individual or parish can offer.  Bishop Pates has sent information and a pledge card to each household. Please prayerfully consider what you are able to give and mail your pledge directly to the Diocese.  Every gift, regardless of the size, is vital to the success of the Appeal. Please join our Parish and the Diocese to continue God’s work of spirituality, charity and education. Thank you.
