Seminary Food Co-op – December Needs: As we thank our Lord and Savior for the bountiful blessings He pours upon us as individuals, families, and a congregation, may we find it in our hearts to share those blessings with others. The CTS food co-op exists to help ease the difficult financial task of managing money for the seminary students and their families since they have given up so much to prepare for God’s service. Let’s fill St. Paul’s donation box to overflowing! Current needs: Christmas baking items - flour, sugars (all kinds), shortening, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, sprinkles, etc. …use your imagination! Also needed: cereal, soups, OTC medication for colds/flu, shampoo, deodorant, toilet tissue, paper towel, and laundry soap. Other boxed or canned food would be appreciated. Please bring your items to the church office and place on the cart by December 12, 2021. Be generous, have fun, and remember these gifts will not only help our seminary students at Christmas, but into the New Year. “Jesus said, ‘Take care of my sheep.’” John 21:16
