Mission Opportunities for April and May

As a congregation we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our community. The Mission, Evangelism and International Ministry Team has been meeting monthly to pray for and plan ministry opportunities for our church members to serve their community. Here a couple of ministry opportunities we hope the church will respond to in the coming weeks. 

Dinner for Appalachian Outreach

AO offers a community meal at the Samaritan House on Tuesday nights throughout the year. Churches are invited to prepare and serve the meals to the residents staying in the house. We are planning to serve the meal on one of these days - April 24, May 8, May 22 or July 4. If we have enough participants we might be able to serve more than one of these dates. Meals would need to be delivered, ready to serve by 5:00 PM. We are asked to prepare for at least 25 people. 

If you are willing to prepare a portion of the meal to provide for one of these evenings, and/or serve the food for the meal please indicate on the form below. You may indicate what part of the meal you would be able to provide. If you cannot provide the food portion but would like to serve the food, this is also an option. The deadline to make your input is April 8. 

Great Big Yard Sale

The church will host a huge yard sale on Saturday, May 12 in the front lawn of the church from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM. All sales will go to benefit the missions of our church. We need your help on various fronts. Please see the needs below and respond accordingly. 

Sorting and Pricing - We already have a big collection of donations given by members. We need help sorting through all of the donations and pricing them. If you are interested in helping on a free day, please contact Eric in the office. He can help you to understand the sorting and pricing system. The Mission Team will also have organized work days in April. 

Yard Sale Set Up - The front lawn will need to be set up for the yard sale on the afternoon of Friday, May 11. We need strong individuals to help move the items from the church storage to the front lawn, ready for the next day. 

Yard Sale Personal Shoppers - We need individuals who will personally help shoppers on the day of the sale. These helpers will walk with shoppers collecting items that shoppers want to purchase. These helpers will also collect the money and make change for the shoppers.
