Vacation Bible School – THANK YOU!

HopeWorks Needs Pantry Donations

As mentioned in this week’s Pastor’s Ponderings, HopeWorks is in great need of pantry donations. Due to high demand, they have run out of many staple foods and personal care products. All items donated must be new, unopened, and not expired or used. Toiletries and personal care items must be full size, not travel size. Please go on the Hopeworks website for a current list of high demand pantry donation needs. Bring donations to Glen Mar. We will have a collection box in the Gathering Place.
