FISH Food Pantry

Don′t forget that we collect for the FISH Food Pantry the 4th Sunday of each month, so plan ahead to bring in some non-perishables.

If you forget, they will always take monetary donations to defray the costs of buying fresh food. Please place your donation in the specially marked envelope and drop in the offering plate. Help if you can!

According to Peg Cannon, Director of FISH Pantry, 1897 adults and 1263 children were helped in July alone! And the numbers keep rising...

Appreciation Letter

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the FISH Food Pantry, our many volunteers and the hundreds of Greene County families we serve, thank you for your generous monetary support of $264.50. We are proud to be a part of the community of friends who care for their neighbors and express their concern in tangible ways.

Your support helps us provide nutritious meals to families, the elderly and the very young. In July, the Xenia Area FISH Food Pantry served 1852 adults and 1183 children, and the number of people in need continues to grow. We are grateful to donors like you who make such a meaningful difference in the lives of our community members during difficult times.

Sincerely, Peg Cannon, Director

Mitten Tree Project

Mitten TreeThe Children’s Christian Education classes will be collecting new warm winter mittens, hats, scarves, and gloves in children’s sizes small, medium and large for children in the Greene County area. This project is managed by the Greene County Combined Health District and will benefit thousands of children. This is a meaningful way to teach our children about giving back to our community.

It is so hard to imagine a child going out in the cold and snowy weather without warm hats or mittens. We will have our painted Christmas Tree in the Narthex with a large gift box underneath for you to place your donations. We also will be collecting cash donations as well. We will be collecting these items through Sunday, December 21 st.
New this year, on Sunday, December 7th, our Youth will be selling homemade gifts for you to buy for that "hard to buy for" person on your list. They have been working hard to finish their gifts and have decided to donate their money to the Mitten Tree Project. We have such great kids and volunteers. Thank you in advance for always helping our children! 

2015 Stewardship Campaign

We give God our joyful thanks and praise for the stewardship commitment made by so many members and friends of Memorial Church. The faithful funding of our church’s mission will enable the continuance of its many programs.

A special thanks to everyone who worked on this year’s campaign. Our preliminary figures show a slight increase in giving compared to where we were at this point last year.

We encourage those who have not yet been able to return their pledge card to mail or turn them in to the church office at their earliest convenience to we may complete the 2015 budget.
