Food on the First
McGill supports the following ministries by collecting donations the first Sunday of every month. Please bring any contributions this Sunday’s services 8:30am or 10:45am to help our community outreach.
Cooperative Christian Ministry needs include soups, pork and beans, saltine crackers, breakfast items, canned meats and canned fruits and vegetables. During the summer months children will not have breakfast or lunch at school. Cereal, breakfast bars and peanut butter and jelly are needed.
The R.A.I.N. Closet needs cleaning supplies and Clorax.
Esther’s Heart Collection will always needs crackers and peanut butter (not peanut butter crackers!)
