PDA is the emergency and refugee program of the PC(USA). The core budget, including staff and administrative costs, is funded through the One Great Hour of Sharing, and its program work is additionally funded through designated gifts.Visit http://www.presbyterianmission.org/ministries/pda/who-we-are/ for more information.
- Congregational Assistance – The Mission Committee seeks to serve the congregation. If help is needed, (small home repairs, rides to appointments, etc.) members may contact their deacon who will communicate the need to the committee.
Any church member can bring an idea or project for consideration to the committee. Come join us in this exciting and rewarding work. Mission Committee meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM at the church.
Thank you everyone for giving the Mission Crafters the opportunity to create treasures out of repurposed materials that ultimately raised money for a worthy cause. Even though the Mission Market Fair is over we are going to keep on creating.
Our plans are that we will continue to craft for missions on the first and third Tuesdays of every month. The crafting sessions will be in the Youth room at the church from 9:00 until 1:00. Everyone is welcome who has a desire to create and have a good time for a good cause.
Experience in the “arts” is not a prerequisite.
For those of you who want to learn more about the arts, we will be scheduling classes in a variety of art forms, such as jewelry making, stenciling, watercolor, mosaics, collage, card making and others. These classes will be held on Saturdays and will be open to anyone who wants to learn a specific technique. There will be a charge for the classes and the teachers will be skilled in the art form. We are looking forward to giving you the opportunity to discover your artistic side.
