A happy and exciting Vacation Bible School week was held July 14 – 18 where 57 children learned about the Glory of God and the Wonders of his World through story telling, music, crafts, recreation, cooking and outreach. The week concluded on Friday with a fun assembly, where families were in attendance and watermelon was served to all! Over 90 youth and adults had wonderful experiences in helping with preparations, or working with the children in attendance during “Workshop of Wonders”, where everyone imagined, built, grew, worked, and walked with God! Mark your calendars for next year’s Vacation Bible School, July 20-24, 2014–”G-Force: God’s Love in Action!”

Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief agency that has been committed to ending hunger for more than 14 years. In 2005 the organization created a meal packaging program consisting of food that stores easily, has a shelf-life of five years and transports quickly. Stop Hunger Now provides over 70% of its meals to support school feeding programs, vocational training programs, early childhood development programs, orphanages, and medical clinics. On Saturday, October 18, 2014 Tuckahoe will be hosting a Stop Hunger Now event in Duntreath Hall. We need volunteers, formed into teams, to package 20,000 meals for shipment to places around the globe. Church members, family and friends, ages 4 and up, are all welcome to participate in this fun filled activity. Set-up for the event will begin at 8:00 a.m. and we will begin packaging at 9:00. Ending time will be around 11:00 with clean-up to follow. We we will also need to raise approximately $5,000 to pay for the raw materials needed to go into the meals. Please consider volunteering to help support this worthwhile organization by either participating on October 18th or through a monetary donation.
There are two ways to sign up to participate in the event and/or donate: 1) via the internet by clicking on the small “Stop Hunger Now” logo at the top of this article or 2) you can call the church office.
