Our Honduras Mission Team has also been hard at work raising funds for their annual trip to bring eye glasses, medicine and health care professionals to poverty stricken villages. They held their 2nd annual Chili Cook-off raising over $2800 towards their trip. Fun was had by all.
In local mission our jail ministry was hard at work this week wrapping gifts for the juvenile detention center and stamping over 700 Christmas cards for them to send to their families! A group of jolly Elves spent their afternoon wrapping to bring Christmas to our local youth. Our God is a forgiving God.
Of course we can not forget our awesome group of United Methodist Women. They raise funds year round for our missions budget! This year they hosted their 1st annual Cookie Walk. Folks were invited to come and fill a box or bag of cookies and they were sold by weight. Over a thousand dollars was raised. Not to shabby for their first year!
How did you serve God and neighbor this fall?
