The Food Bag Ministry is ongoing. We will continue to accept monetary donations. Food bags are available at the back of the education building on the Welchshire side from Noon-6:00 pm every Monday (see picture at left). If you know of a family in need, please feel free to come by and pick up a bag and deliver it.
We thought you would like to see a glimpse of the Food Bag Ministry at work. Thanks to those who volunteered to help fill bags this past Sunday (Dec 6) and to Trish Brownlee and Lindsay Lamport for their vision and work in helping all of us to reach out to our neighbors.
The Park Avenue church family provided 200 bags of school supplies which will be picked up the week of August 24 by the students os Sea Isle Elementary. Each bag had pens, pencils, notebooks, markers, etc. along with a card welcoming the students back to school. Thanks for your help with this. And thanks goes to Trish Brownlee and Lindsay Lamport for organizing this effort.
Dr. Renee Meeks, the principal, accepted the supplies with Michael Lamport.

Twelve children from the Sea Isle community came for the fall Parents’ Night Out event. This is the church’s way of ministering to parents and children in the community and showing God’s love. There were seven helpers who assisted in the fun.
Several ladies from the Park Avenue church as well as some from Sea Isle Elementary came together Tuesday evening, December 1, to wrap presents for the school Holiday Sale. Each year the school has a holiday store for the students so they can buy small, inexpensive gifts for their friends and family. This year we helped out by furnishing a place to meet and extra hands to wrap each gift. Thanks also to Nancy and others who brought refreshments. Several stayed for the entire time, 6 to 9 p.m., and others came and went as they had time. Many thanks for all who helped out.
