YOU CAN HELP!  Please continue to bring clean plastic and brown grocery bags to church (leave them on the kitchen table.)  The first Sunday of each month is FOOD FIRST SUNDAY designate funds for Food First on your offering envelope (over and above your tithe to the church).  Help is needed to bag and set up on the Tuesday before each Food First day.  If you can help, Contact Betty Elkins.

The Food First ministry of New Friendship Baptist Church gratefully acknowledges the receipt of a financial grant from the Diocese of Arlington’s ‘Operation Rice Bowl’.
