Women on Mission will meet on Monday, January 6, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. Rev. Michael Harrison of The Community Fellowship church will be sharing with the group about the Community Storehouse Backpack Program. He will also be giving updates on the warming shelter and how we can better participate in this ministry.
The January mission project sponsored by Women on Mission is collecting mittens and toboggans for local children. Please place these items on the tree in the Narthex. Women on Mission continues to collect old eyeglasses and gently-used Bibles.
Women on Mission wants to give a big THANK YOU to First Baptist Church for our new mission donation to Heifer International in the Christmas season.
Our mission project Heifer International was a great success! The total amount collected was $1,780.00 which allowed us to provide clean water for 3 communities, send 2 girls to school for a year, provide a community 1 hive of honeybees, and provide families 10 flocks of chicks!
We placed our order on Monday, Dec. 2nd after our meeting and were able to participate in the triple match that was available for Cyber Monday only. Now: 9 communities will have clean water, 6 girls will go to school for a year, 3 hives of honeybees will provide honey for communities, and 30 flocks of chicks will go to individual families!
Women on Mission has had a great 2019 and looks forward to 2020! Here is a recap of 2019 mission projects:
Women on Mission had another busy year participating in missions. We made 42 blankets for new babies born in our local hospital. We learned about and supported the Piedmont Autism Organization & Infinity Acres. We made personal bags for the middle school girls and we continue to have cross necklace workshops each year. In August, we shared these necklaces at Harmony Hall as we had an ice cream party for the residents and during the Back 2 School Project. We enjoyed a Bingo/Pizza party with the ladies who reside at the Horne Home and participated in the annual walk-a-thon. We toured the Pregnancy Care Center and collected funds in baby bottles to help the center buy needed items for new parents. To finish out the year, we toured the new Memory Center at King’s Grant and had lunch with the residents, collected snacks for the Raceway Ministry, filled shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child and helped ring the bell for Salvation Army. Our newest project for 2019 was collecting funds for Heifer International Organization.
Many of you were involved with several of these mission projects during the year and Women on Mission thanks you for your generous donations and willingness to participate. Missions is about a church body working together to reach out and share God’s love in the name of Christ!
