The Eagle Scout project of Thomas Huckans, the Blessings Box is located at the corner of Main and Church Streets near the flag pole.  We are collecting canned and non-perishable food and books to stock the Blessings Box for our Lightstreet neighbors; and the neighbors are using the box, giving and receiving blessings.  Community and church members are encouraged to receive the Blessings available from the Box. Community members who have an abundance are welcome to donate non-perishable food and books to the Box. Nothing perishable, please. There will be a dedication of the Blessings Box after both of the worship services.
