Mission and service 
►Food pantry 

The food pantry is open every Wednesday from 10 to 11 a.m. to serve the community.

This week, we served 49 families and 156 people.

If you are interested in helping or know of someone who might be interested, please consider getting involved or at least share the opportunity to volunteer with others.

If you have questions or want to volunteer, please contact Jan Taylor (251‑978‑6418).

►Preschool board might be a fit for you 

Al Sprouse was a dedicated servant at Swift Presbyterian Church. One of his roles was as a member of the Swift Church Preschool Board of Directors. This is a 6-to-7-member board that meets one afternoon a month with the preschool director and the pastor. The board consults with the director on preschool finances, needs, staffing and problem solving. The board is made up of Susie Alexander, Mary Ard, Jane King, Jan Taylor, and Cathy Rogers. Board members possess a love for children, value and understand the need for a preschool to serve our community, have an appreciation of child development in young children, and value Christian education. We welcome members of either gender. We normally meet on Wednesday afternoon but can be flexible for the convenience of members. Please prayerfully consider joining us.

Faith development

Join us for Snacks with Susan and Daryl for a study based on Psalm 23. This six-week study looks at how we feel worried, edgy, and anxious, thinking if only our faith was stronger, it would all be OK. Please stop in and watch the video with us and share your thoughts. We meet at 8 a.m. in annex room 4.

■ The class will be taking off July 14, 21 and 28 to refresh. See you back on Aug. 4.
