MISSION DAY 2019
“Let’s not love with words or speech but with action and truth.” - 1 John 3:18
Join us September 21, 2018 from 8:30am until about noon. We'll gather at the church and split up into a number of teams to serve in the name of Jesus around the community! We've identified five sites so far, but if there is enough interest there are many more we could add. Check out where we'll be and sign up to join us!
This team will be doing basic clean up and beautification for our neighbors: Washington Elementary School. Upper elementary age through adults.
Oasis: A Haven for Women and children
A variety of options are available from assisting with children’s programs (sewing, math and reading tutoring, photography, art and ESL) to organizing and arranging items in Oasis's food pantry and clothing shop. Upper elementary age through adults.
Christian Health Care Center
This team will begin the morning making some goodie bags and cards, and then make their way to the Christian Health Care Center to lead residents in a variety of games. All ages welcome, kids especially!
St. Matthew Trinity Lunchtime Ministry (Hoboken) -
Depart from WRC at 11. Return to WRC around 4. St. Matthew Trinity feeds around sixty to seventy guests four days a week and offers a variety of other services such as tenants rights' education, haircuts, and art therapy. We will be packaging and sorting supplies, as well as cleaning the facility so that it can be a safe, welcoming space for people to have a meal and fellowship. Appropriate for teenagers and up. Note the time is different than other sites!
Wyckoff Public Library
Library director Laura Leonard has asked us to do some cleaning of shelves and surfaces in the library. If you want to put in some elbow grease, this is a good project for you. Before heading over we’ll spend some time putting together packets of cards for refugees. Appropriate for upper elementary and up.
