In addition to times of worship and fellowship together, many of our members volunteer for various community projects in the area.

A recent project of our Presbyterian Women was to encourage folk from our church to sew dresses and shorts for the "Little Dresses for Africa" project.  We are excited to share that  100 dresses and 44 short pants were made for this project.  Thanks to everyone who helped with this project.

"Back Packs of Love" for Festival of sharing are once again a special mission project for Naomi Ruth Circle and we hope to put together 15 packs for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates).  The back packs are given to children ages 4 - 11 who need basic health and comfort items at an unhappy time in their young lives.  Packs to hold our gifts were donated by a Circle member or purchased by the Circle.  We are collecting the following items for each pack.    1 youth toothbrush; 1 tube child flavored tooth paste (4-6 o/)' a T-shirt (child medium, child large or adult small); three pair underpants for a boy or girl for ages 4-11; 1 pair socks; 1 narrow tooth comb; 1 small stuffed animal.   Baskets for all donations are on the lobby shelves.  Thank you in advance for your donations to  this mission project.  Naomi Ruth Circle members.
