Mission Committee Update 2018

 

Thanks from the Mission Committee for the support you have given to our projects so far this year. We are continuing our help to God’s Storehouse Soup Kitchen during the month of September. Their most pressing need is for to go containers for the 45+ dinners they deliver several times a week to the elderly shut-ins. If you would like to purchase a box of containers for them the church office will be happy to order them for you for a cost of less than $25. God’s Storehouse also needs hygiene supplies such as shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrushes, lotion, soap, etc. Monetary donations would also be appreciated as they buy gas for those who deliver the meals to the shut-ins. Our drive will begin the second Sunday in September and continue throughout the month. Thanks in advance for your help.

Kid Junction Report for September 2018

Our 2018 Book bag Campaign was definitely a success!!! We collected 59 backpacks and the largest amount of school supplies we have ever collected. Thank you, church family, for your generosity in helping us reach our goal. Not only were we able to serve children on our normal assistance day, we were also able to donate 10 book bags and school materials to God’s Storehouse. These were distributed at two different apartment complexes in the city. We have enough school materials left over to serve children for the upcoming months. A special thanks to Judy Farmer and Elaine Schaeffer for joining us on August 6 to help with the over flow!
