Casper, Wyoming… What already is an annual event, the Casper Adventist Church again has pledged to help our community, our members in need, and a couple of other organizations, such as Joshua’s Storehouse and La Vida Mission, with non-perishable foods.
On November 2, the first Saturday afternoon in November, we dropped off large paper bags in the neighborhood adjacent to the church. The following Sabbath, we collected the bags, and then met at the Mountain Road Christian Academy gym to sort all the food and prepare it for delivery. “The fellowship was incredible, and the snacks, the apple cider and the hot chocolate were delicious,” said one of the organizers. “Another successful family-friendly community event in the books!”
The church leaders expressed their gratitude to all who planned this event, to all those who participated, young and old, and to all who have given to those in need! Coming together in the season of giving as individuals, communities, and organizations we express a commitment to open hearts and wallets to help those in need. It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year!
