Our needs for the Food Pantry have changed due to the COVID 19 situation. Many of the people seeking help are living in situations where they cannot cook. We need to provide foods that are ready to eat foods. The following are suggestions: Beef Jerky, snack crackers, canned meat, protein bars, fruit cups, peanut butter & saltine crackers. You may bring your donations by the office or you can leave them in the East lobby for pickup. You may also help by providing monetary donations for us to purchase the food for you if you wish. Those can be brought by the office or mailed to us. Thank you for your help!
There will be a Memorial Service honoring Fran Bowden On Saturday, July 18th at 2:00 p.m. at East Side Church of Christ. Please join us in celebrating Fran’s life.

Let’s try a little eye-opening activity… Look on Facebook at your previous five posts (or think about your previous 5 conversations with friends). Pay close attention to what you said, or shared with others, and then answer these questions: What kingdom am I building with my posts? An earthly kingdom, or Christ’s Kingdom? Were my comments an attack on others made in the image of God, whom Christ died for? Since I am an ambassador of Christ, do people see his likeness in the way I talk to, or about others? A few verses for your consideration: With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. - Jas 3:9-10 NIV “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. - Mt 7:1-2 NIV Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister. - 1 Jn 4:20-21 NIV ...God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. - 2 Co 5:19-20 NIV “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” - Jn 13:34-35 NIV “I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God. But whoever disowns me before others will be disowned before the angels of God.” Lk 12:8-9 NIV You either represent Christ in your actions, or the world in your actions. All the time. In every interaction you have. May we all represent our Savior well. Matt
