Promotion Sunday and Rise Against Hunger on Sunday, August 26, 2018

It’s time for the second annual Rise Against Hunger Event. Please remember to mark your calendars now as there will only be one service on this Sunday, August 26th at 9:00 in the sanctuary and this service will be combined with Promotion Sunday.  Following the service, all volunteers will meet in the FLC at 10:00 and we will pack the meals.  As a reminder, this is great fun but a little messy, so don’t wear your Sunday best!  Last year was absolutely amazing and anyone age 4 and over can participate.  There will be a church wide picnic around noon.

 Below is the link to register – WE NEED VOLUNTEERS to package meals and WE NEED CONTRIBUTIONS to pay for the meals.  You can donate immediately after registering online as their website is secure; I encourage you to donate online.  If  you prefer to make the contribution direct to Benn’s Church, please put in the memo line, Rise Against Hunger, so Joan can track the funds and one check can be written.   Currently, our goal is 70 volunteers and 12,096 meals ($3,507.84).


  If you have any questions or trouble registering, please contact the church office at 757-357-3373, Tuesday through Friday from 9:00am to 3:00pm
