The donation of furniture to Helping Hands has continued to be an ongoing project for the mission committee.  Please consider donating any furniture including beds, dressers, chairs, couches and tables to the Helping Hands.
Our annual Rummage Sale is held is summer with proceeds currently going to send kids to church camp.
The Backpack Program is sponsored by the United Way and offers at-risk children a sack of food to take home over the weekend when the school lunch program is not available.
Angel Tree is a ministry that reaches out to children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ.  Each year 20-40 local children receive gifts. 
A six-week challenge is held to gather food items for the local Food Pantries.  A friendly challenge was held between the balcony and sanctuary members to donate the most items.  In the end, the balcony succeeded but a huge amount of food items was donated to the food pantries.
