children attended and we were able to pass out Grace information
along with the candy, and meet and chat with many neighborhood
families as well as our own Discovery Kidz and Club 3:16 kids!! A
special thank you to Ray Zondervan, Kerri Baker, Pat Ter Beek, and
Sandy Workman for their help. ~Heather Dood
CONGRATULATIONS AND A SPECIAL THANK YOU to everyone who
participated in the 13th ACCESS County Wide Food Drive! Many
volunteers collected 80 ton of food county wide last Saturday,
October 9. Here in Wyoming alone about 10 ton of food was
collected. Thank you to each person in this church who was a part
of this day. The food was great, the persons who collected from the
neighborhood were indispensible, and the sorters and boxers
worked so hard! Year after year we have been the collection site, but
it could never be possible without all of you who give so generously
of your time. It was worth it because we were feeding and caring
for the hungry, as Christ asked us to do! God will surely bless those
who obey Him. ~Shari Dood
