These are some recent special mission projects of our church
Warm Clothing donation - On Missions Sunday, November 13, five large bags of warm clothing (socks, hats, gloves, scarves, sweaters, etc.) were donated for our Native American neighbors at the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota.
Bread for the World-On Sunday, January 18th, the church participated in an “offering of letters” in which many members of the congregation wrote to Congress about funding hunger projects around the world. If you did not have a chance to stop by the letter writing table, please go to the Bread for the World Website and click the "How can I Help" Tab.

Crop Walk - Five volunteers from our church took part in the Cardunal CROP Hunger Walk in Dundee, IL this year. It was a beautiful fall day (no rain, yeah!). Our church raised $1507.50 to fight hunger. The four participating churches together raised $4819.25, which benefits two local food pantries, PADS, and world-wide missions through Church World Services. Volunteers from the church participate in the walk annually.

100 Oaks for 100 Years – Volunteers from the church helped plant 100 oak trees on October 18th, in Glacial Park, near Ringwood, IL.
