Santa’s Sneakers and Socks – During the fall of the year, we collect new pairs of sneakers for middle school and high school students as a Pre-Christmas mission project. We deliver the shoes in mid-December to our local Salvation Army which distributes the sneakers to local students who need new shoes. Response to this project has been very positive from our members. During July we collect socks for middle and high school students celebrating Christmas in July. The socks will also be given to our local Salvation Army for distribution with the sneakers in December.
Tuesday Quilters – Church members and friends with seamstress skills gather each Tuesday at the church for fellowship and assembling quilts. The completed quilts are given to members who are ill, to members who have a baby, and to charities like Mercy Care, Presbyterian Communities, Hospice Grief Camps for children, and Fostering Hope. Come join the fun! For more information contact: Jeanne Bredbeck 843-347-5741
