Mission Moments July and August 2021
Special thanks to Ellen Dost and Ruth Gamble and the Sunday school class for making hygiene kits for Church World Service. Thirty kits were sent to the distribution center in Maryland and will be used to help people affected by disasters here and around the world.
Back to School Supplies
Yes, even though school is just ending for the year, we are starting the collection of school supplies for Mansion Avenue School (MAS) and Haviland Avenue School (HAS). The lists are attached below, and the collection will continue through August. The schools appreciate the contributions, and we are grateful for this partnership with the Audubon elementary schools!
On Thursday, June 24th Rich and I brought lunch to UrbanPromise for the interns and staff. They are preparing for their summer camps and programs which serve the children of Camden. This is the 20th year that we have been able to provide either a dinner or lunch to our friends at UrbanPromise! It is a blessing to help those who work closely with the children as they provide a safe place for them to learn and grow in God’s love and care.
The food pantry will resume operating on the second and fourth Sundays at 9:30 beginning in July. Please see Lori Corker or me if you would like to help with this important outreach!
Here are some of the current pantry needs:
Hearty meat soups
Coffee and coffee creamer
Individual fruit and pudding snack packs
Thank you for your support of the many mission projects and for your prayers for those who are working with the various mission organizations and those who are served by them!
Blessings and Gratitude,
