Focusing on the Needs of IPC's Community

This week, we are focusing on our needs for protein in the Blessing Boxes. We all know how important proteins are to a healthy and filling diet. It is so important that we keep many different types of proteins in the Blessing Boxes so that folks have a choice of ways to fill themselves! 

Of course, we immediately think of canned meats as a source of protein, but there are others too. Beans are high in protein and peanut butter crackers are an easy way to get a little bit of protein on the go for our neighbors who don't have a place to cook. Bring some protein to the church this week, our neighbors would be happy to see it!

Our Blessing Box needs for this week include:
Hygiene (best deals on hygiene products are usually at Dollar Tree)
Weekend Buddy Bag needs:
  • If you are in a Grace Group, bring your soup to Grace Group this week or swing by Community Ministries and drop it off!

You can buy anytime from our Amazon Wishlist.
