Decorating place mats for Meals on Wheals

Dear families,

Last Monday, the Assembly Room was filled with busy hands and welcoming faces for our Morning of Mission on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It is a beautiful thing to see young and older working together for the Kingdom of God. The morning flew by in a fleece-tying, pb&j-making, and card-constructing frenzy. Together we:
  • Packed 340 lunches for Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK)
  • Assembled 93 Creativity Kits for HomeFront
  • Made 32 dog and cat blankets for SAVE
  • Created 52 cards for the Deacon ministry
  • Colored 35 calendars for ABC Prison Literacy
  • Decorated 100 place mats for Meals on Wheels
  • Collected dozens of personal care items and put-together gift bags for Arm in Arm
And this was all done in an hour and a half! Prayers for well-being and peace go with these items as they are sent to adults, children and animals in our larger community. More pictures from the event are below.

in shared ministry,
