  • January Mission of the Month


    To launch another year of our Mission of the Month program in January, we are collecting items to fill the drawers and linen closets of the clients of local agencies. We are encouraging you to shop those after-Christmas sales for bath towels, sheets/bedding (all sizes), pillows, men’s/woman’s underwear (all sizes), socks for men and women (all sizes), bras (for all ages/sizes) and toilet paper. Continue to watch the items requested this month as we may add additional needs as some agencies get back to us. Monetary donations are always welcome. Simply write "Jan. Mission of the Month" in your check memo or find a specially marked envelope at the CONNECT at any worship location.
