Rossford Halloween Parade
Our members walked the parade route collecting non-perishable food items for Perrysburg Christians United. PCU is a local organization made up of area congregations providing food and hygiene items to help those less fortunate in Wood County. Thank you to all who participated by collecting and donating items not only for this event but thoughout 2017.
We have a collection area where members and friends place donations. These items are transported to PCU weekly. We also support them throughout the year with noisy change offerings and Souper Bowl of Caring on the first Sunday in February.
Every year our Sunday School children participate in an outreach project for other children. For the past several years they have been filling shoeboxes with toys and personal care items to be sent to children in other countries. This year they helped children right here in our community by making gift boxes for children 12-17 years old. These boxes were delivered to Zoar Lutheran Church where they will be distributed to parents who are having financial hardship.
As in years past, we have asked church members to donate items for the shoeboxes. Last year your donations helped fill 51 boxes! The children fill boxes in mid-November. Below is a list of ideas given to members suggesting possible things in which teens might like. Anything age appropriate was accepted and appreciated. Thank you for your support!
