OTHER EVENTS SUPPORTING DISCIPLESHIP:
  
On the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month, the Food Bank from Victoria delivers our food supplies.  We always need assistance in unloading the truck which generally arrives around 10:30.  If you can help with this, please call the office at (830) 582-1482 with your name and a number where we might reach you to let you know arrival time of the truck.  If you would be interested in helping in God's Storehouse during the Thursday morning hours when food is distributed, also let Virginia Wynne know at 830-582-1392.  Last year God's storehouse provided food to over 4000 people.
  
 
HELPING HANDS:
 
On the 2nd & 4th Tuesdays starting at 10:00 a.m. you have an opportunity to be of service to the church.  We will maintain a list of "honey-dos", small jobs that can be done in about an hour or so.  Come by the church and pick something you would be willing to do.  Afterwards please stay for lunch at the RCC.  Call Johnny Hewell if you would like to help out in any way at 830-554-5872.  Ladies, this is for you as well.  We are going to re-arrange the Sunday School classes and also empty out the storeroom, so your help would be appreciated.
