December 2020 Mission Moments
Please take a moment and read this paragraph and then close your eyes. Imagine that you have just purchased something for one of the mission projects. Now picture the person who might receive it. Will it be someone who has served our country and is now homeless? Is it a mother who had to flee her home because of domestic violence? Is it a child who has been separated from their family due to unsafe living conditions? Is it for a pantry visitor who needs a few more things to make it through the month? We usually have the Birthday Party for Jesus to celebrate together and then send the items on their way. Since we can’t have a party this year, please have your own celebration and remember those who are on the receiving end of all of the various projects. Even if you cannot contribute, your prayers are vital to the work of these organizations as well as the recipients.
Items for all the projects can be dropped off in the mission area or in the porch of the Hoffman House. I can also come and pick them up from you!
