Each month will focus on a different food theme. For May, it is "Mother's Day Breakfast," and includes shelf stable breakfast themed items, such as hot and cold cereals, coffee/tea, pancake mix, shelf stable milk. Place donations in the designated basket in the Narthex. Volunteers will deliver the food items to the Food Pantry.

The JL Outreach Commission is launching "What's Your 2017 Outreach Focus?" on our bulletin board in the main sanctuary hallway. Fill out one of the tags that are on the board to tell everyone about what it is that you do to be active in reaching out to those beyond our community. Could be anything - your work with church groups that have a focus outside of our church, your work with non-profits, your time spent engaged with the community, your time on a specific outreach-focused project. The only requirements are that: It's something that happens for the benefit of others outside our immediate church family. When you do it, you consider this service as part of your expression of faith. Let’s see if we can fill this section of the Outreach board in with a testimony to all the good works that our church family is engaged in beyond our “four walls”!
