Meet Human Needs
Gainesville Community Ministry is always in need of food and financial resources. At this time, they are in desperate need of all types of nonperishable foods. Please check the Publix Buy One Get One special this week. When shopping the BOGO at Publix, you can use 2 coupons even though you are only paying for one item. Thank you to all who have helped to Meet Human Needs. Please remember that the need is great year round.
Dr. Robert Shettler, Pastor
