Advent Mission Opportunity
This year during Advent, we have the special opportunity to provide mission support to two of our biggest mission partnerships, one global and one local. If you have any questions, please contact Assistant Pastor Jason Armstrong.
Global Mission Opportunity
In partnership with Compassion International, we are searching for 17 sponsors for children in the Dominican Republic. During our last mission trip to the Dominican Republic, we visited Compassion International Center 0456. We first came into relation with this center when we provided funds for a water treatment facility near it on a previous trip. During our visit to Center 0456, which we found out was the first time a sponsorship group has ever visited the center, a few children were sponsored by our group. As we considered a global mission opportunity for Advent, we contacted Compassion and learned there are 17 children at the center who still are in need of sponsors. We would like to work towards having each child at the center sponsored by Christmas day. We ask that you prayerfully consider sponsoring one of these children found on the Compassion International website here.
Local Mission Opportunity
In partnership with Mosaic Ministries, we are holding a toiletry drive for families in need in our community. We are hoping to gather 75 sets of toiletries for families, which would include soap, hand sanitizer, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, lotion, baby wipes, diapers, toilet paper, paper towels, feminine products, and deodorant. If you would like to donate to our toiletry drive, you can donate items at the Connection Table next to the elevator or donate through the Give page on our website by putting "Mosaic Ministries Toiletry Drive" in the notes section when you give online.
Meet the church’s local and global mission partners via Zoom on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month. From 6:30-7:30 pm, we will learn about one of our mission partner’s successes and challenges, with the opportunity to ask questions and pray together. Calls will be hosted by mission elders Karla Lewis and John Sluhan and Assistant Pastor Jason Armstrong. Zoom information is listed here.
