Project Agape
Project Agape is a ministry of The Western North Carolina Conference and North Carolina Conference of the UMC that provides aid to those in Armenia. In years past, Forest Hill, has supported Project Agape through their Christmas shoebox program. Since September, there has been intense conflict in the region resulting in the displacement of thousands of individuals. Many in Armenia were unable to take winter supplies at the start of the conflict. This has created a shift in their immediate needs. Project Agape is asking that individuals consider monetary donations this year. That way, Project Agape can more quickly provide warm comforters for the refugees for the upcoming distributions. This year, every $20 donated to Project Agape will support the acquisition and distribution of winter blankets to those in Armenia. While you are still able to build shoeboxes on your own and bring them to the church, our focus will be on providing winter aid. For more questions, please contact Pastor Justin.
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.
