Christmas Food Boxes
As is the tradition at SJC, we will fill 100 boxes each with $25 worth of groceries – complete fixings for a holiday meal! You may contribute by cash, check or PayPal. Please mark your check with “Food Boxes”, or if you give cash, put it in an envelope and designated it as “Food Boxes.” This is a wonderful way to share the opportunity for giving with your family and friends, near and far!
Prayer of Thanks
Blessed are you, O Lord our God, King of the universe. For you create the fruit of the vine and bring forth bread from the earth; and on this day we remember that you have given us the bread of life in the Body of your Son Jesus Christ, and refreshed us with the cup of salvation. As grain scattered upon the earth is gathered into one loaf, so gather your Church in every place into the kingdom of your Son. To you be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.

EPISCOPAL RELIEF & DEVELOPMENT RESPONSE FUND
In 2016, Episcopal Relief & Development spent 84% on programs versus 9% on fundraising and 7% on administration. Because ERD receives support from the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society in addition to income from investments, at least 90% of every donor dollar goes directly to programs.
TIME MAGAZINE: WOMEN WHO ARE CHANGING THE WORLD
