Micah’s Closet Food Pantry
Assist the pantry in being the hands and feet of Jesus through making donations of non-perishable items such as instant mash potatoes, spaghetti and sauce, pancake mix and syrup, canned meats, canned vegetables and fruits, cereal and dry or evaporated milk. Drop your donations in the blue barrels located in the narthex and the great hall foyer. We appreciate your generosity greatly!!!

Prayer Warriors
We have added a new time slot for prayer for the church and VCI on Sunday mornings after the contemporary service. We meet at the kneelers in the great hall closest to the main doors. Look for Wanda Polk or Shirley Ledet. We continue to meet after the traditional service in room 20. These prayer times will be in effect for the next 12 months. Join us!
