The Missions Committee continues to work on behalf of others both near and far. The Committee is working with Stephanie Beck to assist with the support of Waysmeet and the students that find valuable support there. Members are assisting with rides for the students in the Parish House who do not have transportation and with food for those same students. The soup and cookies ministry continues and with this time of upheaval for Waysmeet these items are more important than ever. Please sign up on the Missions bulletin board to assist with the soup and cookies.

John Brothwell reported on the LCC members who participated in the building of the Habitat for Humanity house in Farmington. This opportunity will be offered again soon; be looking for notification on how you can help build a home for a local family. March 28th is the date for the One Great Hour of Sharing offering to be collected. Sunday School children will have cubes in which to collect their coins for this offering.

The Missions Survey recently sent to the congregation, as an attachment to the Open Door, is a valuable survey that provides the Mission Committee with input as to how the congregation would like to see their missions dollars (and their personal time) used on behalf of others. Please complete the survey and let us know how you would like to participate in LCC missions projects.

The Missions Committee will be working with Christian Education on a Pot Luck. A representative from the Pease Greeters will be there to talk about that rewarding program. You won’t want to miss it. The committee will also be working with the Youth Missions Trip on a spring fundraising auction.

Cassidy Kolter has an interesting project she is working on in conjunction with her school work. Watch the mission’s bulletin board to update yourself on how you might partner with Cassidy on this project.

The Missions Committee recognized Phyllis White and Brenda Small for their years of active participation and leadership on the committee.
