This will include opportunities for your "Zip Code Group" to help set up, serve and clean up at the Moveable Feast on your Adoption Sunday!

Cup of Kindness boxes can be found in the Welcome Center. The money contributed in the boxes is distributed by Lutheran Social Services to local families who have crisis needs.

Food Pantry –Food donations can be placed in the “Food Pantry” box located in the Welcome Center. Cash donations may be placed in your church envelope and marked “food pantry” on the “other” line. Members may stop by for food any day when the office is open, and the food pantry will be available for those living in the 46802 zip code area on Thursday, October 19, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in the lower level of Ebenezer Hall.
