Feed the Need MobilePack 2018

121.medium

Feed the Need Mobilepack will be held at North Central College on February 17 & 18, 2018. This February will mark the 6th year Grace UMC has participated  in packing meals for Feed My Starving Children. This ministry has become an annual event and our congregation has paid for and packed 188,519 meals which have fed 516 children for one entire year. Our church has supplied a total of 828 volunteers thus far. 

The catastrophic weather events of 2017 have increased the need for meals. One meal a day will sustain lives and provide God’s children hope for the future. You can make a difference in the lives of hundreds of starving children this year. It takes little of your time, you get on-the-job training, and it’s lots of fun. 

Registeration for packing slots will be held on Sunday, January 28 in the Activity Center from 9 - 11 a.m.

If you have not already registered for a packing slot, there is still time for you to participate in this God-inspired event. There may be cancellations that you can fill, or you can volunteer for support positions that are just as necessary to make the MobilePack successful. Contact Gay Craig at gaygcraig@sbcglobal.net for more information about opportunities to make our world a better place.
