JFY Packing | We give God all the Glory!
Summer has come and gone, and we were blessed to be able to help feed 60 children in 20 families with a “Jiffy Pack” each week over the summer. Our in- school distribution will begin on Friday, September 14th.
The Millersburg School District continues to work closely with us, as we strive to feed hungry children throughout the year. Know that we could not accomplish this without the support we receive from you, our church family, and from our community in general. There are a number of opportunities to step-up and volunteer your time and energy – both behind the scenes, and on the front lines at the schools.
First, we are always looking for sponsors for the JFY Ministry. Sponsor forms can be found at the welcome center in the church narthex. Please prayerfully consider how your family and/or Sunday school class could help with this project.. Second , know that you are always welcome to come and help us pack . Be on the lookout for packing opportunities in our weekly church bulletins. I wish we could share all the stories of how this Ministry blesses both the giver and the receiver. GOD IS SO GOOD! The Idea of a backpack ministry at Grace UMC was conceived by Darlene Bakermans back in 2013, as she envisioned a way to help provide food for at-risk children and families on the weekends.
