Lake Fork UCC will be dedicating their new Micro Pantry at the Anniversary celebration of the church on Sunday August 7, 2022. The Church will be celebrating 180 years as a congregation in the Atwood community. The services on that Sunday will feature special music, speaker Molly Carlson Illinois Conference Pastor, and the dedication of the micro pantry. The church members have a challenge to bring 180 items for the micro pantry on or before the day of the dedication.
The Micro Pantry will contain smaller quantities of food, cleaning products and personal hygiene items. This is not meant to provide weekly needs of a family but items that can be used on an emergency basis. The congregation is beginning this local mission project to fill the needs of community members. The Micro Pantry will be located on the north side of the church and is free to those in need.
The services on August 7 will begin at 9:30 in the morning. After the service we shall play some old time games, followed by a potluck. If you are free, please join us as we celebrate our 180th birthday.
