The youth of our church assembled 140 Easter Baskets for the children of the families of the New Jerusalem Food Bank on Sunday, March 13 th . The baskets were filled with items such as chocolate rabbits, coloring books, markers, wooden models, sand toys, stuffed animals and more as well as lots of snacks and treats! Many thanks to the Wimmer Fund for helping to fund this ministry, to the youth at 1 st U.C.C. for assembling the baskets, to the many helpers who carried the finished baskets upstairs, to the basket deliverers who got them safely to their destination, to the members of our congregation who donated items for the baskets or money to purchase items, to the Giant for supplying the paper bags and to Subway at the Giant shopping center for donating meals to all of the teens who will receive baskets.
It’s wonderful to see the whole congregation come together to spread the message of God’s love to others.
