 so much for your generous donations....

All good gifts around us are sent from heaven above, so we lift our hearts up to you, God,
in praise and thanksgiving.

As we count our blessings, and acknowledge your goodness, our hearts go out to those who do not have, and who are in need.

We thank you for plentiful harvests and full refrigerators and ask that you supply the needs of those who are hungry.

We thank you for jobs that provide for our families and supply the needs of our society,
and pray that you would care for those who have no work, or the dignity and purpose it brings.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Because of the increase in the need for the        

Food  Pantry, the committee is asking each family to

bring a specific item each month to stock the food pantry.                        


We thank you for opportunities and choices,
for meaning and challenges,
and pray that you would give a sense of purpose
to those who feel trapped.

We thank you for family and friends who love us and care for us and pray that you would befriend those who are alone.

The abundance of the harvest
is a symbol of the abundance of your love in our lives. May we live in a spirit of gratitude to you
and generosity to our neighbour.

Loving God, in this season and all year long,
give to us the gift of a thankful heart,
so that we may acknowledge you as the giver
of all that is good in our lives.
In the name of Jesus we ask it.
Amen. ~ posted on the Presbyterian Church in Canada website.

Thank you to Rolling Prairie United Methodist Church for graciously opening their building allowing the Food Pantry, to serve those in need..

DOLLAR  FOR DOGS FUNDRAISER
         The event at Kabelin's was very successful thanks to all who came and bought a hotdog and purchased some of the bake goods. The hot dogs and buns and grill are a donation of Kabelin's. The bake goods were made by the members of the Food Pantry's Board of Directors. Therefore, the event is a total profit for the Food Pantry.

Thanks again for your support.  The profit was $576.
