Mission Report for April 2016

    Mission Report

    The mission committee meets at 7:15pm in the M&M Room on the second Tuesday of each month. Members include Randy Towles (Elder/Chair), Peggy Music (Elder), Joanne Willman (Treasurer), Marla Richardson (Deacon/Secretary), Sandy Palechek (Deacon), and Carol Harlan.

    We make routine donations to several CRU families throughout the US;, international organizations such as Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF)  and Matthew 25Ministries;  local charities such as Serve City, One Way Farm, TLC, Haven House, Community Meal Center, Habitat for Humanity and Buckhorn Children and Family Services. We also donate to homegrown missionaries such as Ben Sturgill who works with IVCF at University of New Hampshire and Christy Smith Sanchez who works with International Leadership Advancement Ministries in Puebla< Mexico. 

    In addition to routine donations, we also organize other collections, such as the shoes for Souls for Soles. We collected 147 pairs, with the Sunday School donating 37 of these. We sponsor Operation Christmas Child shoebox ministry (filling 391 last year). We collect aluminum cans to recycle for the CMC. We also collect medicine bottles, eyeglasses, clothing, and canned goods.  We take a donation during the Live Nativity, and give it to a local charity. We sponsor a garden table and all donations go to local charities. 

    We have given turkeys and other food items to the Head Start families for a few years. 

    We have a pocket change collection, and every 2 months the money goes to a different local charity. 

    We give a donation to each individual in the congregation who goes on a mission trip.

    If anyone wants to join our committee, or just help on the various projects, please contact a member of the committee.
