"Who is my neighbor?" Answering this question is central to the faith of believers. At Ronceverte Presbyterian, our Mission Team believes deeply that all those in need of mercy, wherever they live, are our neighbors. And in today's connected world, we have an obligation to help our neighbors near and far. Today, we are honored to be joined by William Deng, Executive Director of the Southern Sudan Project in Richmond, VA, and originally from Aweil, Sudan.

Our local Food Pantry has seen dramatic increases in food requests over the past year. Over 100 families now come twice a month to receive food. This weekend, we're helping bag the food and hand it out. Bagging will begin at 5:45pm on Friday, and then at 8:15am on Saturday we'll open the doors, welcome people inside, and then help them carry the bags outside.
Please let me know which day you'd prefer to help. Thank you for showing the love of God in this important ministry!
