  In November and December, each year, Limestone members are invited to “pluck the turkey”. Each “feather” lists items to be brought in, such as frozen pumpkin pies, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables. The items are sorted and packed in boxes (Holiday Food Baskets) to be given to needy families in the area.

  Limestone's Board of Deacons oversees the Food Closet. The congregation donates food and cash to the Food Closet. 

When a state agency or other authorized organization makes food request referrals, the closet staff prepares bags of food and the church office staff distributes the bags when people come in with referrals.

  Limestone members have been very active on Levite Sundays and Church Clean-up Days. The Levites were the keepers of the temple in the Bible. These days, we put on our “Levis” and take care of our church and grounds with the extra care and attention it sometimes needs.
