Donating Love Through Food

This Friday is our special worship service, Encounter: 10/2 from 7:30 - 9:00 PM. After Encounter we invite you to Common Grounds Coffee Bar for dessert and to interact with the new art exhibit in the gallery, The Textures of York.

In the main lobby area and in the coffee bar area, we'll have Rubbermaid totes for you to donate canned and other non-perishable food items that will be delivered to York Rescue Mission. Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming and what better way is there to show love for others than by donating much needed food to our local community.

Here's an idea: If you shop at Giant and get the bonus card savings, that is a GREAT way to think "donation." When something I usually buy is, say, "buy one, get on free" or "10 cans for $10" - I just put the extra ones (the bonus buy items) in a bag and donate them - this time on Friday night at Encounter to support York Rescue Mission. I hope to deliver a well stocked minivan full of food to YRM on Monday, 10/5. And you can help fill up the van!

See you Friday @ Encounter and then in the coffee bar for some time to connect with friends over dessert and coffee and food donating.

Grace & peace,
