AUGUST MISSION PROJECT
On July 30th Dwayne and Paula will be handing out Animal Boxes. Just pick one up and collect your change for the month of August. There will be stickers to decorate your box and make sure to write your name & envelop # on the box. If no envelop then make sure your name and address are inside the box prior to handing it in. The boxes are due back Sept. 3rd. They will then get together with the children to buy animals from Samaritans Purse to help countries overseas. This project is always a lot of fun and the Adults get involved too!
FEBRUARY MISSION PROJECT
The Fireflies will be collecting Jell-o, Pudding, Sugar Free Jell-o and Sugar Free Pudding Packets throughout the entire month of February for the Perry County Food Bank. Please starting picking up a couple of boxes when you are at the store each week and bring them in to the church. There will be a bin in the Narthex where we will collect them. What a great outreach!
