Local Missions Fund For those times of emergency when there's no where else to turn, we can help! We have a special team of three dedicated and caring volunteers who oversee this important local mission. A special collection during our Christmas Eve services goes toward funding this mission.
Thanksgiving and Christmas Baskets With a yearly collection of canned and boxed goods, turkeys and fruits, timely and helpful boxes of food are assembled and distributed through a coordinated effort with Gert's Pantry to families in need for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Collections of non-perishables start the first Sunday in November. On the following Sundays, boxed foods and foods which are more perishable are collected. We are proud of the many donations our generous congregation contributes every year.
