Mitten Tree: Each year we collect mittens, scarves, blankets, long underwear, and etc. for our local Rescue Mission in Pevely, MO. The Rescue Mission serves as a distribution site for food, clothes and furniture, as well as offering assistance to the homeless and jobless.
Souper Bowl Sunday: This project began at a Presbyterian Church as a local mission project. Before long, churches all across the nation have joined together to collect soup and crackers on Super Bowl Sunday to remind us that many people are suffering from hunger in our own country.
Backpacks for Kids: Currently, there are over 500 children in Foster Care in Jefferson County. When these children are removed from their homes, they are unable to take anything with them. Our women’s group makes lap quilts to add to the backpacks as way to offer comfort to a child.
Give a Meal A Month: This is an on-going project for the Rescue Mission. Members are asked to bring in non-perishable items to help stock the food pantry. Food bags are collected on the last Sunday of each month. A list of needed items are posted on the bulletin board at the entrance to Fellowship Hall.
