Lenten Season Offering

The Church Council voted that the 2016 Lenten Season Offering would be given to Special Kneads and Treats, which is a non-profit specialty bake shop in Lawrenceville, designed to provide Special Needs adults within the surrounding community a place to learn a skill and develop a sense of accountability and pride.

The program allows this special group of people an opportunity to provide for those less fortunate or in need, such as local Food Ministry Cooperatives, Elderly Care Facilities, Battered Women and Children’s homes, as well as many small locally owned businesses, and individual consumers.  Profits from standard sales are injected back into community programs to further assist Special Needs awareness, research and many other areas of need.  AGLC will be providing them a check for a little over $1,200.
