In October the mission focus of First Christian Church in Troy was the Greater Troy Ministerial Alliance and its Bread for Life Food Pantry. Interim Pastor Katherine Kinnamon issued this challenge to the congregation: "Can It!" That is, bring in 1,000 canned food items by the end of the month to help stock the pantry's shelves.
They found out what the most needed items were, and did the math. Based on the first Sunday in October's attendance, each person would have to bring in 7 cans to meet the goal.
Did they do it? You bet they did! In fact they collected over 1,200 items!
