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.
Below are the projects we have been a part of since January, 2017.
On Sunday, January 8, our Mission Sunday focused upon Project Angel Hugs. This organization sends cards and gifts to children fighting cancer across the country seeking to add a spark of laughter and fun to the life of children and their families touched with cancer.
Our Mission Project for February had us focusing on Operation Gratitude.
This is an organization that seeks to lift the spirits and meet the needs of the
U.S. Military and First Responder communities.
Every year, Operation Gratitude sends over 200,000 care packages to
those deployed overseas, to their children left behind, to veterans,
First Responders, wounded heroes and their caregivers.
We wrote thank you letters along with a collection of lip balm and
toothpaste to be included in those packages.
We also made quick release paracord survival bracelets.
These are used in the field and combat zones for emergency situations.
The Linus Project was our March Mission Project.
The Linus Project was created to provide blankets to children to provide
love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously
ill, traumatized or otherwise in need.
Our April Mission Project had us taking worship on the road!
We worshiped at Terrace Place on Palm Sunday.
The children began the service with the waving of the palm branches.
The Hand Bell Choir, Chimes Choir and the Sunday School
children performed. A time of fellowship followed the service.
