The loose plate offering will be designated for the Mercy Chefs Ukrainian Relief effort organized by the Smithfield Downtown Merchants. OR checks can be made out to Christ Episcopal Church with Mercy Chefs on the Memo line and put in the offering plate. The counters will probably appreciate checks over a lot of loose offering!
