LIVING THROUGH GRIEF: 

Grief is the normal and natural reaction to substantial emotional loss of any kind. Regaining our sense of wellbeing from a significant emotional loss is not an easy task; it takes time and requires attention, open-mindedness, willingness and courage. Pastor Ken invites you to explore “living through grief” in a welcoming, small group format. We will meet in the COB on Thursday, November 2nd at 11:00am.  Please join us.

For the month of OCTOBER  we will be collecting Boxed Cereal  for our Treasure House donation. Cheerios, Mini Wheats, Raisin Bran, Granola, Grape Nuts and many more nutritious boxed cereals are needed this month for our Treasure House Collection. Boxed Cereal is a simple, fast and easy to prepare morning breakfast or snack for families on the go.   Many children go without breakfast in the morning and boxed cereal is a simple solution. With, or without milk, boxed cereal packs many different proteins, vitamins and nutrients to get those children going in the morning-especially before a full day at school!  Fill up your carts for your family and our Treasure House families this month!

Households with children are the largest demographic group accessing emergency food boxes (EFB). The average number of EFB's distributed monthly in Clark County has increased from 9,500 to 10,100 and 39% of those receiving hunger relief from this source are children.
