Merry Christmas from the Mission, Outreach & Evangelism Committee. This month please pray for Rock River Valley Pantry. “The Rock River Valley Pantry’s mission is to fight hunger in the community by providing nutritious food to those in urgent need. They are the largest community-based food pantry in Northern Illinois, distributing needed food from two locations five days a week. They provide more than a million pounds of food each year to those in the community who would otherwise go hungry. With the help of Master Gardeners, they have a 32-bed organic garden that provides more than a ton of fresh produce each year.” We continue to collect peanut butter for the pantry. Please drop off a jar or two at the church. For more information see www.rrvp.org. Please pray for those that are going hungry.
Prayer & Praise: Peter & Anna Praise: Peter was able to go to their home in their previous country to get the things they left behind and say goodbye to friends. Pray: For believers who are under heavier than normal restrictions in religious freedoms and are experienc-ing financial difficulties.
