Guest post: ‘Delivering’ God’s love in a pizza box

This week we’re sharing a project from Rev. Stephanie Richmond and the communities of Greenbank UC and Seagrave UC in Port Perry (north east of TO). I invited Stephanie to share her community’s project with us because I hadn’t before heard of Sunday School being done in quite this way!
