MISSION MINDERS –
“Our second mission project for 2022 will be CARE NET, a local mission organized to distribute baby items such as diapers, baby bottles, clothing, and other necessities required for mothers to support the needs of their young children as they begin their lives. This project will run from May 1 through the last Sunday of August. Please mark the back of your mission envelopes with CARE.”
Our area has always been great supporters of local and regional sport teams, and it is a tragedy to see someone of such a young age be disabled by injuries. We know that you will be generous in helping us to make this mission project a great success.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 15:58

If you would like to volunteer with this ministry or know of someone in need, please contact Karen Hayman or the Church Office.
Called to Care: Trained volunteers from our church are available to assist the Pastor in visiting shut-in or hospitalized church members who are no longer able to attend regular worship services or participate in church functions.
