We believe that in addition to our times of worship and fellowship together, it is important that we help meet needs of others in our community and around the world.
Some of the projects we are involved in are:
Bright Futures with Clinton Schools
Meals on wheels
Red Cross Blood Drives
Collecting items for the Samaritan Center
Little Dresses for Africa
Hygiene items for Little Girls in Africa
Annual hot dog luncheon during 'Ole Glory Days
Annual participation in The Festival of Sharing
Annual Jesus Camp for kids K - 6th grade in the area
This year (2018) The deacons will prepare and deliver Holiday Fruit Baskets on December 8 & 9.
End of year donations were made to the ministerial alliance, Angel Tree, Christmas Cheer, Senior Center and Samaritan Center.
The Working Women’s Group will not meet for dinner in December but are supporting the Candy Cane Tree at the Senior Center. Anyone interested in supplying gift bags (consisting of a warm throw, flashlight, light bulbs and bath tissue) for a homebound Senior, please see Pam Gray or Diane Hannah. Bags can be left at the church building through Wednesday, Dec. 12. See the bulletin board for more information about suggestions for the gift bags.
161 one pound bags of noodles were delivered to the Samaritan Center for Project Christmas Cheer thanks to your donations and generous monetary gifts from the Naomi Ruth Circle, the deacons and friends of the church.
Supplies for personal hygiene items for the “Little ‘Girls in Africa” project are available in the foyer. Sewers, you will find strips of flannel and lining material in tubs ready for you to convert into hygiene items. We plan to ship the completed materials in February for distribution later this year to African village girls. All supplies for this mission project are donated by the Samaritan Center Thrift Shoppe. This is an annual project by the Naomi Ruth Circle here at church.
