Hunger Action Month

There are lots of opportunities this month for you to help feed hungry people in our community and around the world. Notice the food displays in the entryway, church windows, and the Matthew 25 information table in the Commons. We focus on hunger needs in October, but it is also a reminder that hunger should be addressed all year long. Remember to bring food, "noisy coins" or make your check out to Faith and indicate on the memo line where you want your donation to go: DMARC food pantry, ELCA Hunger or Matthew 25 Outreach.

Be sure to watch as the food stacks up in the Commons as we try to collect 2,000 items!
