Greetings, neighbors

Hope all is well with you. We are preparing for the last first day of school in our home. Exciting and a little sad at the same time.

Angel Food Project comes to Boonsboro

The Angel Food Project has come to Boonsboro, under the auspices of the First Christian Church on St. Paul Street.

The program offers several meal-planning options that are nutritionally balanced and affordable.

Different box options include a family box that will feed a family of four for a week; a convenience box that contains 10 frozen, microwavable meals for the person on the go or with limited mobility; a grill box; seafood box; and fruit and vegetable box.


Boxes range from $20 to $30 and must be ordered in advance for the once-monthly delivery. Orders will be taken Friday from 5 to 6 p.m.; Saturday from 10 to 11 a.m.; and Sunday from noon to 1 p.m. at First Christian Church. The program accepts cash and food stamp vouchers.

Boxes will be available for pickup Saturday, Aug. 22.

There are no eligibility requirements for the program. It is open to all income levels, households and individuals.

For more information, call 240-625-2700.

Barbecue planned

The Boonsboro Ambulance and Rescue Co. will hold a chicken barbecue Saturday at the ambulance station on Old National Pike from 9 a.m. until sold out.

Chicken will be sold as halves only or dinners with baked beans, applesauce and roll.

Church youth group travels to New Orleans

The Jesus Justice Jazz contingent from Trinity Lutheran Church will present a special service Sunday, Aug. 23, highlighting their recent experiences at the National Youth Gathering in New Orleans.

The group will host the 10:15 a.m. worship service and share stories, lessons and photos from their trip. The 11 members from Boonsboro were part of a group of 37,000 teens who converged on New Orleans and performed an equivalent of three years worth of recovery efforts in three days.

The gathering was one of the largest in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.

Guest author

On Sunday, Aug. 23, Boonsboro Bible Church, at 6741 Old National Pike in Boonsboro, will host best-selling Christian author, speaker and President of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. Ergun Caner.

Caner will speak during two services at 10:35 a.m. and 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
