Monthly – April through December Meals/Snacks for Heritage Manor Nursing Home Workers

Weekly – Every Wednesday Food Pantry
We continue to provide food for our community at our food pantry every Wednesday from 9:00am to 11:00am. While helping to meet the tangible need of food, this outreach also allows us to make new and ongoing contacts with members of our community and ask how we can pray for them.
