Pack the Pulpit This Sunday


chili, beef stew, green beans,
corn, peas, mixed vegetables, rice,
 dried pinto beans, and Ramen Noodles
 We also need medium sized boxes to transport the food to Impact

Any child in 1st-5th Grade may join us in the trip to Impact after worship service. You may bring your own lunch or bring $5.00 to cover pizza and ice cream. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children. Kindergartners are welcomed as long as one parent attends as a chaperone. Contact Shannon at  or Dawn at to get your pizza order in!   The bus will be pulling out at 
 12:00 pm, so you will not have time to run out and get something to eat like in the past. The Middle School/High School will be traveling to Impact to serve food while the elementary stocks the distribution center with the donated food. We expect to return to Kingwood around 3:00 PM.
Parents this is a great oppoortunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus by serving alongside of your children and teens. We are so very blessed that our children don't really understand hunger. Impact has served thousands of hungry families and outdoorsmen. This summer at Impact VBS one young boy inhaled three lunches, we are sure he had not eaten in 1 or 2 days. Edi this precious little guy whose family are refugees from Africa came in every morning with his siblings and cousins hungry. One morning he could not stuff the food in his mouth fast enough, he scarfed down three servings.

David Beagle runs the distribution center at Impact, he serves with such compassion, dignity and love. The outdoorsmen don't just take, they have given back thousands of hours of service at Impact, that amazes me!
