COPE Needs Saltine Crackers: This month COPE is asking for saltine crackers. Don Harper reported a record breaking number of families needed help through COPE’s food pantry last month. The need in our community is great, so please give generously as you are able.

Thank You! You helped make my graduation very special. I am so excited to be starting Shawnee Community College in the Fall. Thank you for your gift, the recognition at church, and for being in my life. Your support means a lot to me. Christ Loves You! -Geoff Crippen
