    ‘Jesus Sees Spiritual Need’
    Mark 6:34

    ■ One of the angels Swift Church lost this week was Tina when God called her home. Tina was inspirational in the growth and her dedication to the food pantry. We thank you, Tina, for all that you did in the time we had you here at Swift.

    Food pantry 

    The food pantry remained open on Wednesday, March 25, to help 34 families and 78 people with their food needs. Thanks to all who have volunteered to keep our food pantry open.

    Our food pantry will be open again on Wednesday, April 1. Distribution is from 10 a.m. until noon. People’s food needs do not stop. Church family is always invited to use the food pantry when you have a need. We are here to help you in whatever way we can.
