Children’s Ministry: Mission Project

The Children from Sunday School would like to donate pajamas, stuffed animals, slippers, and/or cozy blankets to children who are entering the foster care system. These items are given, along with hygiene items, in a box to children before they go to their first foster home. It’s a traumatic and scary time for a  child, and the hope of the gift box organization is to take a bit of the sting out of that. Money is also welcome.

VBS Planning Meeting

Sunday, April 12th at 12:00, in Activities Room . Please plan to come if you have a child who will be attending VBS, or if you are able to volunteer.
