VBS Donations

 – At the back of the church are sticky notes with food donation items needed for VBS. Cookie donations are marked with Sunday and Wednesday delivery days. In an effort to make VBS safe for everyone we are requesting that peanuts and peanut butter not be used in cookies. Please have items in the kitchen by 2 pm on Sunday August 3rd so the kitchen has time to purchase any missing items. Thank you again for your willingness to serve the children of Grace and JC in this way! If you have questions please contact Rita Metz: 937-596-5155.
