Announcing an IMPORTANT SUMMER CHANGE in our Silverdale Food Drive. There is no summer session at Silverdale. In place of our Second Sunday food collection, SUMC will continue to help needy children and their families by purchasing gift cards from a local supermarket for families selected by the school. These designated (no alcohol or tobacco products) cards will supplement regular family food purchases. This change applies to June, July and August only. We will resume our Second Sunday food collection on September 14. We invite your contributions; make checks payable to the church, with notation: “Silverdale Food.” (coordinated by“Manna”---a committee of Church and Society—Missions and Outreach)
