Each week we are asking our congregation to be in prayer for one of our supported missionaries or local mission agency. This week we ask that we each bring Second Cereal Sunday to God in prayer.
On the second Sunday of each month during the school year we collect boxes of cereal. This Sunday – January 13th – we again ask all in our congregation to bring a medium size box of cereal and place it in the special bins marked for that purpose. We’re grateful for the many in our congregation who faithfully provide 1, 2 or 3 boxes to be included in the weekly distribution of food to children in our schools who would not otherwise have enough to eat over the weekend. This support is provided to students and their families who are facing the obstacles of poverty in Batavia and have qualified for the free/reduced lunch program in our schools.
We partner with Fox Valley Christian Church where food donations from throughout Batavia are added to backpacks for distribution to the students each Friday. We have committed to provide 80 boxes of cereal each month and are an essential part of this ministry of compassion. As you bring your cereal boxes, please be in prayer for these students. As we engage in meeting needs of these families, also pray for the workers at the Batavia Food Pantry and the clients they serve. Express gratitude to God for how he is meeting the needs of our neighbors who struggle financially.
