Walk to help feed the hungry.
CROP walk is scheduled for Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 9 AM. We start at Lee Church and walk along quiet country roads surrounded by the autumn colors of mid-fall. This is a leashed dog friendly event! We need a couple of volunteers to help with sign-up and to help on the day of the event. Proceeds help the hungry in our local area including the Wilkinson Food Pantry. Contact Rich von Oeyen or the church office (659-2861 leechurchucc@comcast.net)

Please join us by supporting our “Clean The World’s One Project.” 

This is a program that provides us all the supplies to make up small hygiene kits  that will be donated to Waysmeet in early November.

The kits contain toothbrush& paste, soap, shampoo & conditioner, cream, razor, washcloth and a personal note that we will be filling out.

For the next 3 weeks there will be collection envelopes and we appreciate your generosity, each kit is $3.00 and our goal is to make 100 kits.

We hope you will be able to support this mission project as each kit provides hope, our working together and support to our local community.

Thank you,
Missions Committee

As of March 15th John Brothwell is the chairman of the Missions Committee. Sid White is the representative for Council and Brenda Small will be the fill-in Council representative. Debbie Cayer is the Secretary. We have not appointed a Treasurer. We are working on setting up the Crop Walk for mid-October.

We are making progress on ways to raise more money for Missions and we will be having a meeting the first Wednesday of the month. We have seven committee members and Abby Croot has joined us as the youth representative. Leanne Burke has joined us as well. We are enthusiastic to work with Waysmeet Center in Durham and are exploring options to work with two other groups.

The Missions Committee is looking for more volunteers to help out - the more the merrier in this group! We look forward to a wonderful 2015.

The Missions Committee has many thank you’s this month.  We want to thank Otto O’Connor for his inspirational words during Missions Sunday.    Also thanks for the Members of the Missions Committee who participated during both services.    It is that time of our year when Committees change their membership.  The   Missions Committee wishes to thank all those who have been serving on Committees and are now moving on to other areas of service.   A special thank you to those members of the Missions Committee who are leaving after their 3 year terms – Stephanie Beck, Kirsten Berthiaume and Ellen Doller.    Thanks for all your support over the past 3 years.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to Neighbors In Need offering in November.    

The Missions Co. will again be at coffee hours in December with opportunities for alternative holiday giving.  We will have information about both Heifer Project and World Vision.  What better way to honor someone special, than to give a gift that continues to provide support long after the Holiday season is over.
