WEEKLY FOOD OFFERING UPDATE
The food offering basket is full to overflowing again! Many thanks for continuing to drop your
donations by at the church! The groceries are going to be delivered this week to Antrim/
Bennington’s food pantry at the Baptist Church in Antrim.
A while back there was a really interesting post seen on social media. We share it today so that
it informs you, as you shop for your food offering donations. Check it out! once again, thank
you so much for keeping our church’s food ministry active and vibrant!
Our next food offerings will be gathered and dropped at Jaffrey’s Food Pantry, so keep
them coming! This pandemic economy has caused intense need.
It’s always nice to find out that someone has been inspired by our mission projects. Case in point, I received an email last evening from one of the Hundred Nights Peterborough Posse volunteers. She has a friend in Boston who prepares Valentine bags for homeless folks who come to a homeless shelter in Boston. She wrote that she felt inspired to do the same for folks at Hundred Nights. She was asking for some specific numbers of folks who drop in regularly at the shelter’s drop-in center, as she would like to build a project in Keene for doing the same type of holiday surprise. She was unsure if she would have time to get it done this year, but said she wanted to definitely pursue it as a project! Such a nice idea and I’m so glad that our church has the weekend meal program that got her involved and stepping out in her own right!
What ideas do you have for stepping out in mission? Talk it up! My bet is that someone will be inspired and excited to join hands with you and get the job done!

PASSING OF LUCY JANE BENTON
Lucy Jane Benton
November 6, 1925 ~ December 29, 2020 (age 95)
Lucy Jane Benton, age 95 of Peterborough, passed away peacefully at her home on December 29, 2020. She was born in Dyer, Arkansas, on November 6, 1925, the daughter of Joseph and Fannie (Loomis) Lawrence.
Upon graduation from high school, Lucy moved to Washington DC in 1942 to work for the government supporting the troops. She and her husband, Bruce, were very active in the First Baptist Church of Washington which counted President Truman as a regular attendee as it was a few blocks from the White House.
For many years she volunteered with the Red Cross as a driver and served as a Girl Scout Leader. In 1960 she became a real estate agent, earning the designation of Broker and for 20 years owned a Re/Max franchise in Potomac, MD. Upon retirement, she bought a motor home and drove the AlCan Highway to Alaska with a friend – one of her favorite experiences. She moved to Peterborough in 2006 after her daughter and son-in-law had moved to the area.
Lucy is survived by daughter Jane B. Butler of Bennington.
Burial will take place in the spring at Pine Hill Cemetery, Peterborough.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Lucy’s name to The River Center or The American Red Cross.
