Penny Wars for the Poor

The Church and Community Ministry Team is inviting the whole congregation to participate in the 18th Annual “Penny Wars for the Poor.”

This is a charitable challenge to all local faith communities to see which congregation can collect the most pennies. It is a fun way to make a difference.

All proceeds collected will be donated to the Commission on Economic Opportunity (the “People Helping People” organization) and will be distributed locally. Proceeds will be used to End Childhood Hunger in our community.

A container in which to deposit your pennies will be located in Fellowship Hall on March 26th during the Fellowship Hour hosted by the Church and Community team. The container will also be out in Fellowship Hall during the following two Sundays.

Let’s give our idle pennies a purpose and make every “red cent” count!
