There is always a need for food (either as a primary or secondary source So we are always asking our members and friends to consider donations of non-perishable food items and/or monetary donations so that the mission can purchase the items most needed. If you intend to give a monetary donation, checks should be written to GAEFM and cash donations should be put in a sealed envelope and sent to the church or put in the offering plates on Sunday mornings. You may send your donations to the food mission to the church. Please write “Food Mission” on the envelope so that it may be directed to them. Thank you in advance for your caring and generosity during these most difficult times.

A mail box has been installed at the entrance of the labyrinth. It will contain prayer cloths and a “Let Go and Let God” prayer card. As you walk the labyrinth you might consider any cares and concerns you may have. In the center there will be a device in which to tie your prayer cloths to and leave them there. Your thoughts as you walk out of the labyrinth could be of thanksgiving. There are many ways to walk the Labyrinth this is just one of them.
