Women’s Retreat 2015

The women’s retreat was a huge success this year.  The women enjoyed worship, fellowship, food, free time and best of all the Mission Project.  The Mission Project was “Little Dresses for Africa.”  At the retreat the women set a goal to make 50 dresses for young girls in Africa. Although 32 dresses were completed at the retreat, many of the women decided to pull together and make more dresses, enabling us to hit our goal.  Glendens Bazuaye will be traveling to Africa in early April and has agreed to take our projects with him.  To God be the glory!

Thanksgiving Baskets

The Mission Committee is asking for your help again this year in providing Thanksgiving meals to needy families in Mesquite through Sharing Life Community Outreach.  The cost of each Thanksgiving basket is approximately $30 and we will be providing monetary donations to Sharing Life rather than assembling baskets.  If you would like to help with this project, please mark your contribution “Thanksgiving Basket” and place it in the offering plate or bring it to the church by Wednesday, November 12. Baskets will be distributed to prescreened families November 18-21, at Sharing Life.  The deadline to deliver money to them is November 14.
