This year we are bringing items for the RCC Amazon Boat Mission Trip.  We will be collecting: Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, Wash Clothes, Bar Soap, Flip Flops, Sunglasses, Muscle Rub, Hydro-cortisone

Along with the Amazon supplies, we are also asking kids to bring daily offering money. This part of our VBS Missions will be going to The Portland Movement. They are a church start up program. The money we raise will go towards purchasing items, for the children’s area of the new church.

Getting Close!

After the most recent update from our awesome church secretary, the Porters are excited to say that they are getting close to their fund-raising goals!   If you haven’t been keeping up, they were able to purchase their plane tickets after the fund-raising dinner hosted on April 6.  That was a huge answer to prayer right there.  Since then, they have saved, earned through bracelet sales and received gifts bringing them just $1220 away from being fully funded for this mission trip.  Their remaining money is due to Polish Christian Ministries by May 15, which is just over two weeks away, so they still need some help.  If you’d like to be part of what God is doing in Poland, please visit their financial support page to see how you can help them close the gap!

Thank you to all who have already given funds, prayers and encouragement.
