The Essex Food Bank needs cereal and jam for the families they support.  These items are in short supply.  We continue to support both the Essex Food Bank and the Salvation Army Food Bank. These are challenging times for food banks and both groups are very appreciative of our support.



Our Daily Bread for September, October and November is available in the Narthex.
