Bring In The Harvest

Centenary’s Thanksgiving tradition has been to provide groceries to those who are in need. If you would like to participate in this Harvest project, please take this flyer to the grocery store with you and purchase the items listed below. Double the bags and write “complete” on the outside of the bag to let us know that you have purchased all the items. You will have the opportunity to bring them to the altar on Sunday, November 24. One completed bag should feed a family of four for a week. If you would like to do this project with a friend, please feel free to do so.

  • 1 box of powdered milk
  • 1 large box of cereal
  • 1 jar of peanut butter
  • 2 packages of dried beans or peas
