Community Food Drive We will be supporting the Community Food Drive sponsered by the Mission Chamber of Commerce. Bring non-perishable items with you to church, or any time during the week, and we will see how full we can get the area around the altar before we deliver everything to the Mission Event Center the last week of May.Let’s see if we can get so much that Pastor Bill can’t get to the pulpit!

Prayer Group – Just a reminder that the Prayer Group meets every Monday at 11:00 AM in the Chapel. Attendance has been a bit slim recently and we have lots of people who are in need of prayer. If you can spare an hour to help others, come join us in this vital ministry.


Do you have any unused glasses? Cell phones? Hearing aids? The Lion’s Club would LOVE to take them off your hands! Just bring them to church with you and drop them in the box at the Welcome Center They will be recycled by being distributed to those who are in need, but cannot afford them.


Do you have old Upper Rooms? How about Daily Breads? Any other devotionals? Folks at the Salvation Army are in need of them to help them with their journeys to the Lord. A basket has been placed in the Welcome Center for you to put them in.
