MCN churches raised over 3,000 pounds through Canning Hunger

Pastor Brian has reported that First Church of God collected 1,600 pounds for Canning Hunger!

Congratulation to the good folks at FCOG and Pastor Brian for stoking the fire!

I reported earlier that Grace collected 1,012 pounds and between All Nations, Newton Christian, and New Life, another several hundred was collected. PTL!

The Salvation Army sorely needed those supplies as their demand has grown while supplies dwindled, and thanks to MCN churches, we raised somewhere around 3,000 pounds.

Thank you to each of you! for all you help make happen to show the Love of Christ in so many ways!!
