Sweetness of Peace: February 17th from 2 pm to 4 pm
This year is the 14th anniversary of the Springfield Peace Center’s fundraiser, “The Sweetness of Peace”. This event will take place Sunday, February 17th from 2 to 4 pm. The “Sweetness of Peace” celebration will be held in 105 Shouvlin on Wittenberg University’s campus. Sponsored by the Springfield Peace Center, all proceeds will go toward “sponsoring” children for the annual Peace Camp in June. This 33rd annual Peace Camp is a community service provided free to the first 225 children who register. Desserts will be donated by prominent area caterers. Admission to the event is $15 which will allow you samples of 10 different desserts. The Springfield Youth Symphony Orchestra will provide entertainment and door prizes will be provided. The tax-deductible admission tickets can be purchased from any Board member (Christ Church’s Scott Dooley), at the Peace Center (224 W. College) on Tuesdays or you can purchase them at the door.
January is Christ Church’s responsibility to help serve lunch at St. John’s Lutheran Church each Friday. There are two shifts. The first shift prepares the meal and sets up from 9 AM to 11 AM. The second shift comes in at 11:30 AM to serve and clean up, finishing at 1:30 PM.
Christ Church is responsible for providing dinner to the guests at Interfaith Hospitality Network Sunday, February 1oth at 6 pm and Saturday, February 16th at 6 pm. If you can help with this ministry please contact Lori at firstname.lastname@example.org call (937) 605-762.
If you have an hour to spare please join us for the food pantry delivery at 9 am at Christ Church. We unload food and remove packaging to get ready for Food Pantry on Wednesday, February 13th, at 9 am.
Christ Church Food Pantry is open on the third Wednesday of each month. The next Food Pantry is on Wednesday, January 16th from 11 am to 2 pm. It takes many hands to operate the pantry. If you’re interested in volunteering please contact either Ann Chitkara at email@example.com or Anne Randolph at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
As our clocks spring forward we will collect loose change or bills to support our Christ Church Food Pantry. Use your change to make a change in the lives of the hungry. Baskets will be passed at each service for this offering.
