Safe Haven Family Shelter
During Lent we will again be collecting items
for Safe Haven Family Shelter.
This year they have asked for . . .
Diapers (all sizes)
Healthy Individual snack packs for children during tutoring
( such as cheese, granola bars, dried fruit, peanut butter crackers, etc.)
Bring your donations to one of our Lenten lunches after church.
We Outdid Ourselves!
The joint efforts between Southminster and our scout troops collected 360
items of food and $1003 for Second Harvest Food Bank through the Souper
Bowl of Caring. I think this may have been a record for us.
Upcoming Missions Opportunities
Believe it or not, the Holiday season is upon us.
This year we plan to provide Kroger cards to Norman Binkley families who need a ‘helping hand’ at Thanksgiving. No special offering will be collected for this outreach. We will cover that expense with designated ‘Neighborhood’ benevolence funds.
We will be taking up three special offerings for our yearly support of Heifer International, the Joy Offering, and the families who need a helping hand at Norman Binkley. We have been very supportive of all three in the past. The mission committee just wanted you to have a ‘heads up’ so you can plan your Giving for this Christmas season.
