Gas gift cards (BP, Exxon or Sheetz) and Food Lion Gift Cards in any increment are greatly appreciated.

You can leave the gas and store gift cards at the church office or drop them in the mail slot located in the Parish Hall. Items are to be dropped off at the church in the wooden bins in either vestibule from Saturday June 1st through Sunday June 9th.
