First Communion Classes February 24 and March 3rd after worship. If we have enough kids. 3rd grade and up are invited to First Communion Classes. Please see Pastor Dennis if you are interested.

FISH continuing the Munch Madness competition will be structured similar to the NCAA “March Madness” college basketball tournament. Businesses and organizations participating will be placed in tournament style brackets as a team, and on a weekly basis from the dates of February 22, 2019 to March 15, 2019, teams will collect food. Then on the following Fridays, teams will bring their collected food to F.I.S.H Food Bank located at 1407 North B Street, Mercer Creek Church from the hours of 3pm to 5pm to weigh in their contributions:

The first weigh-in will be February 22

The second weigh-in will be March 1

The third weigh-in will be March 8

And, the fourth and final weigh-in will be March 15

The teams that bring in the most food in pounds move on in the brackets. After the first weigh-in, teams will be narrowed down to 16 total teams. If your team is knocked out of the competition, we encouraged you to continue to collect food and partner with another team of your choice that has moved ahead. Thank you to the Boss family for transporting the food for weigh ins.

Weekend Nutrition—We are in need of food for weekend nutrition bags for 15 children at Lincoln Elementary. Please bring your donations and place them in the box under the coat rack near the sanctuary doors. Examples include: Chef Boyardee cups, mac ‘n’ cheese cups, fruit or pudding cups, small crackers and cheese packs, basically anything that is easy for kids to open to eat for lunch or dinner. Bags are assembled here every Thursday for delivery to Lincoln. If you would like to donate money, we will buy the food—please write out your check to FLC and put “Weekend Nutrition” on the memo line. Thank you for your support!
