Sunday, April 19: St. John’s Lutheran needs YOUR help is collection donations for their Blessing Bags! What’s a Blessing Bag, you ask? It’s a way to bless someone less fortunate – in the form of a brown bag filled with toiletries, snacks, and maybe a note of encouragement…in this case, our St. John’s Food Pantry offers Blessing Bags to a number of people without a home, who primarily carry all they have in a backpack – so, lightweight items are much-needed. Join St. John’s after their 10:15am worship service on Sunday the 19th on the K-1 Playground and donate! To see what items are needed for the Blessing Bags, click HERE.
Sunday, April 19, 8am-3pm: It's finally time for the 21st Annual Orange Plaza Car Show.
