Sweet News–Mission Garden Honey Available While Supplies Last
Did you know that we have bee hives in the North Wilkesboro Presbyterian Mission Garden? Thanks to Jule Hubbard, we do! Jule has tended the hives and harvested and bottled the honey. The Mission and Outreach Committee is making it available to the congregation for a minimum donation of $5.00 per bottle.
All proceeds from the sale of the honey will go to the 2-Cents-A-Meal Hunger Offering. The supply is limited, so stop by the display in the fellowship hall next to the Presbyterian Coffee Project to get yours while you can.
The Presbyterian Coffee Project adds single-serve cups
The Presbyterian Coffee Project now includes fairly traded coffee in single serve cups to fit Keurig coffeemakers. They are available in three roasts: Organic Breakfast Blend, Organic French Roast, and Organic Decaf. Stop by the display in the fellowship hall to see the selection of fairly traded coffees, teas, and chocolates.
When you purchase coffee, tea, and chocolate through our Presbyterian Coffee Project, not only do you get delicious coffee, tea, and chocolate at wholesale prices, but your purchase counts twice:
1) The farmer receives a fair price for his/her product, and,
2) For every pound of coffee, tea, and chocolate purchased, Equal Exchange donates $.15 to the Presbyterian Hunger Offering.
Collecting Canned Soup for the Samaritan Kitchen of Wilkes Backpack Program
Each Friday during the school year, Samaritan Kitchen of Wilkes sends backpacks filled with easily prepared, non-perishable foods home with children who might otherwise go hungry over the weekend.
This month, our congregation is collecting cans of soup for the backpacks. Please bring cans of soup and put them in the “well” in the breezeway between the education and sanctuary buildings. The Mission and Outreach Committee will see that they are delivered to Samaritan Kitchen of Wilkes for inclusion in the weekend backpacks.
