With the Christmas holiday approaching, we all find ourselves counting our blessings and there are so many things we can be thankful for. Just look around and see all the blessing of the Lord. Everything we have in life is given from above to sustain us and to keep us and to share God's precious love. Blessings come in different ways and come from faithful supporters like you that have given so generously throughout the year to the Spearfish Community Food Pantry. You've donated grocery items, fresh produce from your gardens and wild game from your freezers, cash, for the beautiful winters hats, gloves and scarves you have made, your precious time and even your grocery sacks. Giving is a great way to say thank you for all that has been given to us and to remember our neighbors during this festive season. The blessings of God in our lives and the people God has blessed us with and the hope that we have in Christ is reason to rejoice. May the Lord continue to bless this ministry.
