There was a wonderful opportunity Tuesday, July 14, for me to thank the youngsters participating in the Five Church Vacation Bible School for collecting canned and dry food for The Vineyard.
It also gave me an opportunity to thank their churches for monthly donations of food or funds for purchases. On the second Sunday, First United Methodist collects funds for us as does First Presbyterian on a designated Sunday. We can turn each dollar they collect into $16 worth of food when we purchase it from the Corpus Christi Food Bank. First Christian Church of Beeville is also most helpful by calling to see what we need in the pantry and shopping to fill the request.
Faith Lutheran is faithful in supplying us with soup and crackers and St. Philip’s Episcopal Church and School with peanut butter and jelly.
The music and activities at “Discovery Canyon” were exciting ways to learn more about Jesus!
