Outreach
Lighthouse Ministries
The Missions Committee collects funds and small personal care items to support Pat Nissel's Lighthouse Ministry. A basket has been designated for personal care items you wish to donate. Also, if you choose to make a financial donation, please make checks payable to Pat Nissel.  Thank you for your support!
Allison Hill Ministries
The Missions Committee collects peanut butter, canned tuna fish, and hot dogs for the Allison Hill Community Ministries Food Bank. There is a basket and a cooler in the Narthex for your donations. We also have a basket for personal care items and cleaning supplies for their mission. Bill Jamison thanks you for your continued support.
Ronald McDonald House
Soda can tabs are being collected for the Ronald McDonald House. You can bring your tabs to the church and place them in the container on the table outside of the office. Help support families with children with medical needs that keep them in the hospital.
Lions Club
Used eye glasses can be placed in the designated basket on the missions table located outside of the church office. The Lion's club distributes these glasses to people in need of glasses around the world.
Local Schools
We support our local schools by collecting box tops and labels for education found on the labels of Campbell's, Vlasic, Pace, Swanson, Pepperidge Farm, and Prego products. Please place your labels with the UPC code in the basket under the Campbell Kid in the Hall located outside of the church office.
Lioness Club
Collects and delivers cancelled stamps to the VA Hospital in Lebanon. The stamps are used for "hobby therapy" for wounded veterans in more than 130 Veteran's Administration hospitals. It has been in operation since 1942. Stamps for the Wounded accepts any U.S. or foreign stamps that are not torn or damaged. The organization requests you leave at least a quarter-inch margin around the stamp and don't try to peel or steam the stamp off. Collect enough to fill a large envelope or box and ask the Post Office clerk to put stamps on the shipment.
The Society of St. Andrew gleaned and collected over 33 million pounds of produce and food in 2012. Volunteers glean nutritious produce from farmers' fields and orchards after the harvest. This food is delivered to those in need. Truckloads of unmarketable potatoes and other produce, donated by the agricultural community are delivered to agencies serving the poor. This saved food amounts to over 100 million servings to feed the hungry. For more information on this ministry, visit their website: endhunger.org. You can make contributions to their ministry by placing your spare change in the jar marked PENNIES FOR POTATOES on the missions table in the hall.
Millions of keys become  lost or obsolete annually. Don't throw them in the trash. There is a basket on the table in the lobby where you can donate unreconciled keys to support people with kidney problems. Pat C. will deliver them where they need to go. Thank you.
