The Missions committee would like to thank everyone for their donations and help during the month of February.  We are still hoping that the money contributions to Missions will increase.  As Christians of First Church our concern and care for others is most important.   Our $2.00 bookmarks “Where to Find” and “Books of The Bible” did very well and we were able to send from First Church to “One Great Hour of Sharing” the amount of $149.00 (and still counting!).  Also we hope the children at Children’s Hour and the congregation enjoyed the flannel graph board story of “Jesus Heals Ten Sick Men” Luke 17 verses 11-19.

Starting the second week of March it is time to collect for our Hygiene Kits.  This year Missions is asking if each family could possibly take a zip bag and fill it with (1) bar of soap, (1) face cloth), (1) hand towel, not too large 15”x 28” to 16”x 32”.

Also there will be an envelope marked $2.00. This $2.00 donation will be put towards the postage cost. This is a bit different than in the past where we have asked for 7 items.  The collection box will be placed in Fellowship Hall marked Hygiene Kits. A box of zip bags to fill will be there also.

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing. Romans 15:13
