Still Speaking — Clark-Grace UCC

Our Weekly Inspirational Scripture:
Matthew 4:12-23  (NSRV)
12 Now when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee. 
13 He left Nazareth and made his home in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, 
14 so that what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled:
15“Land of Zebulun, land of Naphtali, on the road by the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—
16 the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death
light has dawned.”
17 From that time Jesus began to proclaim, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” 
18 As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. 
19 and he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” 
20 Immediately they left their nets and followed him. 
21 As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. 
22 Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him.
23 Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing every disease and every sickness among the people.

NEWS REGARDING THE DAILY BREAD FOOD PANTRY

Although you should not currently drop off your food donations at Heidelberg, they are desperately needed.  We are seeing an increase in the number of new families and seniors coming to the food pantry due to one or both people losing their jobs. 

We have always been a faithful congregation and hopefully we can continue.  There is someone at the food pantry to receive your donations Monday through Friday from 9 A.M. until noon.  I would recommend you don't drop off on Wednesday morning though since they are busy serving clients.  You are welcome to drop off food that is not temperature sensitive anytime of any day or evening.  There is a large beige drop off box on the side of the food pantry right next to their garage door.  It is clearly marked.  Their address is 3938 Ridge Pike, Collegeville, PA  19426.  You can also use this address if you would like to make a donation.  Any amount will be appreciated. 

To get more information on the food pantry you can like them on Facebook.  This way you can keep in touch with what they do and their urgent needs.  It is great seeing so many members of Heidelberg still serving at the food pantry.  They are working on giving masks to all of us to keep us safe and have instituted many practices to maintain a safe distance while serving there.  But I know everyone, both volunteers and clients alike, will appreciate your prayers and support!
