As the Small Church With the Big Heart that Does Great Things,
our response to the movement of the Spirit in our midst has made a
difference in the Community.
Each month, we designate a Sunday to our "Mission Project" Sunday.
In the fall of 2018, we participated in the Prayer Walk held at the beautiful
Christopher Farm and Gardens near Lake Michigan.
At each station, we had the opportunity to engage
in an activity or reflection.
Nineteen individuals took part in the Prayer Walk and
we raised $875.00 which went to the
Rays of Hope Food Pantry in Kiel and CROP.
We also participated in the Sheboygan Area Food Bank project.
Twenty-two individuals sorted and packed nonperishables.
For our November Mission Project,
we packed 27 Christmas Boxes for the Salvation Army.
Thirty-two individuals assembled these boxes for the Salvation Army
who provides these boxes of nonperishables for the elderly living in the area.
In December, we rang bells at various businesses for the Salvation Army!
In January, thirty-eight volunteers tied 27 blankets for the Linus Project.
One of our members, Joan, is the district coordinator for the Linus Project.
For our February Mission Project, we participated in "Operation Gratitude".
Operation Gratitude supports our troops overseas but also new recruits,
veterans and first responders by creating paracord bracelets and writing
thank you notes and cards.
We also collected boxes of gum, hand warmers, chapstick, pens,
playing cards and crossword puzzle books.
The March Mission Project took us to Willowpark Assisted
Living Center to sing some favorite hymns!
The Sunday School sang favorites and the Hand Bell Choir also performed.
For April, we held a worship services at the same home.
We also collect new and gently used medical supplies through
the program called Mano a Mano (hand to hand).
We have taken several trips of supplies to the
distribution center in Minneapolis, MN.
This organization sorts and packs items that will be sent to Bolivia.
