The need for Resurrection’s Weekend Backpack Ministry continues to grow as we anticipate providing easy-to-access/prepare food for 400+ children. Help pack meals with Weekender Backpack Ministry every other Wednesday at 6 p.m. in rooms 5 and 6, continuing Feb. 15.
New volunteers are needed to help support this important ministry for the first and second Friday of each month. One or two additional people are needed to help support months with a fifth Friday (quarterly).
Thanks to Resurrection member generosity, we provided gifts for 40 children from 19 different families at Douglas MacArthur Kindergarten Academy, provided all Weekender recipients with scholastic books, and we made a big year-end contribution to the cupboards at Hunger, Inc.
Give back this Advent season with Resurrection’s Sharing Wreath! The Sharing Wreath provides gifts for 40 children from 19 families at Douglas MacArthur Kindergarten Academy. Please wrap gifts, label with the family and child information, and return to church by Sunday, Dec. 11.
Donate to the Weekender Backpack Ministry to provide a $5 scholastic book for each child this Christmas. Donation envelopes are available in the church narthex. Weekender is also continuing to collect 16-28 oz. plastic jars of peanut butter for winter break.
Here’s a great (and easy) way to share with those in need this holiday season! Do a Reverse Advent Calendar by adding a food item to a box each day starting on Dec. 1, then place the items in Resurrection’s Breadbox on Christmas Eve.
Help fill the shelves in the Resurrection Breadbox to support the Interchurch Food Pantry of Johnson County. Donations of elbow macaroni, spaghetti, and white long-grain rice are always needed for Second Helpings.
Douglas MacArthur Kindergarten Academy (DMKA) is excited to once again welcome volunteers into their building! Those interested can sign-up online or contact Pastor Ryan.
School Uniform Supplies Needed: The clinic at Douglas MacArthur Kindergarten Academy keeps extra uniform supplies on hand to give to students in need. They would appreciate donations of pants in sizes 5, 6, and 7.
