September 29-October 28
Hunger’s New Staple
“After the Great Recession, households began using emergency food assistance programs as a consistent solution to their food needs. ...Findings suggest that, in the aftermath of the Great Recession, families not only visit pantries for emergencies or temporary food needs – instead, for most people seeking food assistance, pantries became a part of households’ long- term strategies to supplement monthly food budget shortfalls. Seniors, who so often are limited by fixed or limited incomes, were among the most consistent pantry clients.” – FeedAmerica.org
WE CAN HELP! Please join our WMU by giving to the Harvest for Hunger Drive. There are two ways to give: 
1. Bring canned goods (no glass containers) and place them at the Harvest for Hunger display in the breezeway.
2. Give monetarily to our church and designate your gift “Harvest for Hunger.” The food pantries can purchase $2 of food for every $1 that is given.
All food items and donated funds will go to our local Salvation Army, Yokefellow Ministry ,and Foothills Food Pantry in Dobson. Thanks for your generosity.

New Name: Founders WMU Group
Four of our longstanding circles in WMU have joined together into one group. We spent several months during the last church year trying to decide what name to use, something that would honor the ladies of all the groups who did so much to carry out the cause of missions in our church for many years. Since naming each of the four groups would make too long a name, we settled on The Founders, because in all their years of service, the founding women laid the groundwork for where we are today. Members from the Hensley, Etheridge, Beck, and Jackson Groups (all originally named for outstanding women missions leaders) now invite you to call us The Founders. You are also invited to join us as we meet every second Tuesday at 10:30 at the church. We look forward to many more years together as we study and partici- pate in missions.
