Current Missions



The Mission Committee will be packing 150 shoeboxes this year. We are challenging the members of the congregation to match us by packing 150 shoeboxes as well. This challenge places our goal at donating 300 shoeboxes for 2019! The Committee will be providing plastic Samaritan’s Purse packing boxes this year. Look for them in the Bistro area in October. See lists of suggested items to collect in this week’s bulletin
