MISSION OPPORTUNITIES

Alternative Giving
Remember the friends, family, and neighbors on your list while sharing God’s love by helping others in need. Instead of purchasing a gift, make a donation to one of the missions on the list below in honor of your recipient.
 
This year you can do your Alternative Gift Shopping online, Sundays of Advent, or in the Church Office. Take a look at the link below for all of the many missions you can donate to or choose one of your own. With each donation you receive a card and a handmade ornament (limited supply of ornaments).
 
 
 
Project Agape
Project Agape delivers shoeboxes to children in Armenia throughout the year. Project Agape is supported through the Western North Carolina and North Carolina Conferences of The United Methodist Church. There are three ways to get involved in Project Agape: you can pick up an empty box and pack it at home and return it to church, join us as we pack boxes together on Tuesday, December 6, and give a monetary donation to support Project Agape. We hope you will be a part of this mission opportunity as we bless children in Armenia.
 
 
ELF EXPRESS
Do you have Christmas cards that need to be delivered to church members? Well, you are in luck, the youth will deliver Christmas cards on Sundays. Drop off your cards in the box provided in the Narthex and they will be passed out during Advent. You can donate the cost of your postage to the youth group for this fundraiser.
