2021 Wake Forest CROP Walk, September 26, 2:00 PM, @ WFPC

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink” Matthew 25:35a NIV. We have an opportunity to “Walk” the talk by participating in the 2021 Wake Forest CROP Walk. Donate or join the team by clicking on the link below. The walk this year will be virtual. Our team will walk on our own WFPC campus. Twenty-five percent of all proceeds will stay in our own community split between Hope House and Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry. Come and join the team, show our unity, and make an impact in our own community.

Hurricane Ida Relief

Hurricane Ida has hit the Louisiana and the other Gulf States hard and as a result much of the area is flooded, experienced destruction, and is without power. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is poised to help in recovery efforts. One way you can help those affected by Ida at this time is to give monetary assistance. Go to https://wfpc.breezechms.com/give/online and select “Presb. Disaster Aid” from the drop down.

 

Backpack Buddies Upcoming Meal Packing

Calling volunteers to help pack meals on Saturday, September 11th at 9:45 a.m. in our new location in the Red Mod. We will be packing for all three schools and can use your help.

If you are interested in volunteering to pack or deliver meals or would like to just stop by to see what the team does, please contact Heather Baxter at heathersb73@yahoo.com

 

Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry

Thank you for all of your donations to support Tri-Area Ministries Food Pantry. They have made a big difference. Unfortunately, during the summer our donations always drop off at TAM and the rise in COVID cases has impacted this also. As a result, we have decreased the amount given to our clients by 10 pounds per month. If you are able, please donate any non-perishable food to the Tri-Area Ministry food pantry. There are donation boxes in the Narthex closet and also in the CLC beside the front doors. You may also donate in the large food bin at the pantry anytime at 149E Holding Ave. if that is more convenient for you. Also we will accept monetary donations which may be mailed to PO Box 1394 Wake Forest, NC 27588 or through an online donation directly to the food pantry. For more information, please visit our website, triareaministry.com or contact Armin Harrell at alharrell48@gmail.com. Thanks again for your continued support.

 

Community Garden

Be the answer to a prayer. Spend one or two hours in the garden, and you can provide fresh, delicious produce to families in our community who are desperately hungry, and have fun at the same time! Fall is a great time to be in the garden, harvesting late summer crops and planting winter crops. Don’t like getting dirty? It takes many non-gardening tasks and talents to run a community garden. You don’t even need to step into the garden to be the answer to a prayer that blesses our hungry neighbors. Please call Pam Schulze, 919-522-3146 for more information. Thank you!

 

Mission and Outreach Golf Tournament

The annual fall Mission and Outreach Golf Tournament that was scheduled for this October is being canceled due to the rapid increase in COVID cases the past several weeks. We will plan on rescheduling this event in the spring of 2022
