OCTOBER MISSION PROJECT

On Sunday, October 24th, after church, eleven of us gathered to put together fleece blankets for clients of the Friendship Service Center.  We still have many to make, so a future date will be announced; please come if you can.  There is no sewing required for this project, just cutting, tying and a lot of conversation and laughter!  Any questions, please email Joyce Anderson gjkand@aol.com.

NOVEMBER MISSION PROJECT

On Saturday, November 6th, members of First Church participated in the Boxes to Boots event at Bee Hive stadium.  Boxes to Boots supports and sends packages to those overseas in the military and provides basic necessities with some valuable “extras” (playing cards and books) that truly brighten their days.  For some of the recipients, these items are the only connection they have to home. Knowing that we recognize and honor their extraordinary sacrifice can sustain our troops during deployment.
