SPONSOR-A-FAMILY AND PANTRY VOLUNTEERS
On behalf of the Ecumenical Lay Council Robin Newton and I wish to thank all of our congregants who graciously and generously offered their gifts, time and talent to the annual Sponsor-A-Family Ministry and Pantry Volunteers during the month of December.
The Sponsor-A-Family gift donations greatly exceeded what we asked for and I know how very much those gifts meant to local families who didn't have the means to provide what was now a meaningful Christmas for their young children. We even provided gift cards for them to purchase holiday food to make their holidays even more special.
The pantry volunteers filled the December dates from Monday-Thursday and based on the feedback received, the Northport-East Northport pantry was blessed with the holiday spirit and help that they all provided to the
clients. We also heard of the wonderful heartfelt experience that all of our people felt in so many ways after meeting the people who utilize the pantry. It was a true blessing and learning opportunity for all involved.
We felt that this was a true Christian outreach ministry for people right in our own communities. The clients are extremely thankful for what we do and thank us at every chance they can.
God Bless All of our Church participants. Blessings, Frank Lehmann and Robin Newton
