One church joining faith and action

Cereal for CCAP 2020

In the past, we have collected boxes of cereal to donate to CCAP to feed the hungry in our community during the month of September. This year has presented challenges, not the least of which is that our church is closed because of the pandemic.

But creative minds will not be stopped, and James Rinker, who heads up this program, has found a way! The program will take place in October instead of September, and we will collect cereal boxes every Thursday while the community dinner is taking place at the church.

Congregation members who want to participate can drive up to the back door and drop off their cereal between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. every Thursday in October.

The community dinner has continued throughout the pandemic as a “carry out” meal instead of “dine in,” and guests come to a different door to pick up their meals.

It is good to know that, in spite of the pandemic, we can continue to do good in the community!
