Missions

Current Mission Focus

 Heifer Project

          Our Church family will contribute money fto purchase a WATER BUFFALO from Heifer International.  This water buffalo will be a tremendously helpful gift to a family in need.  

          In poor communities, water buffalo from heifer are providing draft power for planting rice and potatoes, milk for protein and manure for fertilizer and fuel.  A farmer can plant 4x more rice with a buffalo than by hand generating added income to use for clothing, medicine, school and home improvements.

           Our give of a water buffalo costs $250.00, so let's pt our donations together to provide for a family in need.  This gift can lead a hungry family out of poverty and give them a chance for a bright future filled with hope and free from hunger.

COMMUNITY FOOD BANK

           The food bank continues to pick up our contributions of boxed food, peanut butter and canned goods each month.  Remember to bring your items in for this great need.  Food Bank containers are at each church doorway and on the front railing during November.
