The Mission Committee had a busy 2016 Christmas season. The first week of December, we delivered to OASIS 2 large wheeled totes of toys from the congregation. They were surprised at our generosity. I received a tour and was told of the many things they do to help women improve their lives and their children. See me for more information on what they do.
We also helped several other groups:
- Stuff a Backpack for Vets-sweats, thermals, socks and gloves given to homeless vets.
- Norman S. Weir School—special education students treated to the movie “Moana” as part of their study of world culture. Some had never seen a movie in a theater.
- Center for Hope and Safety-formerly Shelter Our Sisters- received items for their monthly birthday parties for the children.
- Santa Rosa in Guyana, SA-received basis school supplies
- We helped 3 families of children in Rutherford receive Christmas presents.
All we do is done in the name of God and the First Presbyterian Church of Rutherford.
The Mission Committee is always on the lookout for new projects and would welcome your ideas! Sometimes you read or hear about an organization that is working towards changing lives for the better. We welcome your suggestions and would surely welcome some new members. We are a friendly group that works well together. We meet the 1st Wednesday of the month at 7pm in the CE room, for about one hour. Please consider joining us!
