We, as a church, have been very busy for the past four months! From the Missions Committee, here is an update of all of our activities and donations that have been held from January through April of this year:
In March, we came together and sang hymns while we ate together in fellowship and voted for our favorite animal for the Heifer Fund. The end results in the voting were as follows: chicks = 5, Pigs = 3, Sheep = 8, Rabbits = 3, Bees = 9, Llama = 6, Water Buffalo = 7, and our winner is Goats = 11 votes!!
Likewise, we came together to show our support for our scholars. After our Scholars Potluck, we collected $2,646.00 total. Of that amount, $1,182 went to our Scholarships of GRACE, $907 went to the Mexican scholars, and $557 went to the Cuban scholars. Thank you again to everyone who donated and brought food!
At the end of March, we collected our first two-cents-a-meal offering for a total of $614.36 that went to Independence High School and their snack pantry.
Finally, on Easter Sunday, we collected a special offering called, “One Great Hour of Sharing”. The total was $1,154.00.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in these missions: the scholars, the local students, the Heifer vote, and One Great Hour of Sharing.
Your Missions Committee is so grateful for your generous giving and perpetual support.
