“Monumental” changes are going to occur soon at Spirit of Life Presbyterian Church! Our church’s road sign on the corner of Pilot Knob Road and 144th Street is going to be replaced with a new sign in the coming weeks. It will be easier to read and include the ability to display electronic messaging. We’re excited about this enhancement to our church property – watch for more changes coming soon!
The Little Free Library in front of Spirit of Life Presbyterian Church has been converted to a Little Free Pantry. It is stocked with items than can withstand the cold and be added to a meal, such as small packages of dried soup, cereal, rice, dried beans, nuts, etc. (please, no cans, bottles and perishable items).
In these stressful times, the Little Free Pantry is for our neighbors as well as our church. The theme is “take what you need, add what you can.” Donations are appreciated, but additional food items much fit into the pantry. Nothing can be left outside on the ground or in the church building. If your items don’t fit into the pantry, please bring them back another time. Church members will monitor and stock the Little Free Pantry as needed.
If you have questions, please contact our church office at 952-423-2212. Spirit of Life Presbyterian Church is located at 14401 Pilot Knob Road in Apple Valley. For more information about the Little Free Pantry movement, please check out www.littlefreepantry.org.
