Our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive is here! We have the great honor to help provide Thanksgiving meals for our neighbors in need. We hope you’re able to pitch in and buy food, help pack bags, and hand out meal bags on distribution day in mid-November. Our goal this year is to provide 400 meals through our local RSM Cares Food Pantry. The food list is below. 

• All donations are needed by Sunday, November 15.
• Bag packing day is on the St. John’s courtyard Saturday and Sunday, November 14 and 15, Noon to 4 p.m. Please email Roger Bradshaw to let him know you’ll help.
• Distribution day to families in need is at RSM’s Shepherd of the Hills United Methodist Church on Wednesday, November 18, noon to 5 p.m.

Let’s pray for those in our community who need a little extra care this holiday season.
Almighty God: you know the names and needs of all who are in need. As we enter this season of festive celebration, cause us to remember and reach out to all who require help. We commend to your continual care the homes in which all of your people dwell. Thank you for the many blessings you bestow upon us; help us to give of the bounty we have received so that others may be fed and warmed. We give thanks for all members of our community, and ask that your love flood each of us, that we may be kindly inclined to one another at all times and in all ways. We pray these things through Jesus, our Lord. Amen.
