Springfield Peace Center “Sweetness of Peace”

Sweetness of Peace: February 11th from 2 pm to 4 pm

This year is the 13th anniversary of the Springfield Peace Center’s fundraiser, “The Sweetness of Peace”. This event will take place Sunday, February 11th 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 32nd 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.

 

Rainbow Table

August 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.

 

Food Pantry Delivery

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, September 12, at 9 am.

Christ Church Food Pantry

Christ Church Food Pantry is open on the third Wednesday of each month. The next Food Pantry is on Wednesday, September 19 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 ann@nullnova.pcc.com or Anne Randolph at annejrand@nullaol.com to volunteer.

Day of Change

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.
