Opportunities for Service & Giving
"Gifts for Life" from Episcopal Relief & Development : How can you give unto others this Christmas? If you give a goat, you give a family a stable source of food and earnings. You can support the health of mothers and their babies, or provide a child with clean water. ERD promises to always use your donation wisely, spending 84% on programs, 11% on fundraising and only 5% on administration. For more information CLICK HERE. 

North Porch : You can now support this vital ministry supplying goods and services to mothers and young children by donating a 'voucher' which will enable them to buy essential supplies at a very favorable rate.

Community Food Pantry: Still needed THIS WEEK: An extra volunteer to collect and deliver a large food drive collection.

 St. Paul's Shelter Meal : Tuesday December 18. Financial assistance is available to offset the cost of ingredients - contact Mary-Esther Arther or Rev. Jon.

Outreach news : the latest batch of checks has gone out to the five local food pantries we support, plus North Porch Dover. During 2018, we have collected and donated an amazing $5,200 to support these organizations in their valuable work in our communities.
