ON GOING COLLECTIONS FOR LOCAL MISSIONS

The church has an on going collection for St. Vincent DePaul.  They need spaghetti, canned food, boxed food, clothing, blankets, small working household items, toiletry items and they also collect and haul appliances and furniture.  You can drop things off at their location on Clay Lick Road or simply bring them to the church during office hours.  We have a collection tub for them near the kitchen.

 We also collect Macaroni and Cheese for the Lord's Locker You can put your donations in the large tub located near the kitchen and we will deliver it for you!

We are the "green bean" church for the Backpack Program in Brown County Schools.  We have committed to taking at least 90 cans of green beans to their drop off location each month, so that they can fill backpacks for those children and families who are in need.  We accept any brand of beans but if possible bring in cans with pull tabs on top.

 

 

Sleeping Mats for the Homeless

Last year we began a new ministry.  We started collecting recycled plastic bags and making sleeping mats for the homeless with them.  We start by cutting the bags a certain way and tying them together.  Then we roll the plastic into a ball of PLARN (plastic-yarn), then we crochet them into the sleeping mats.  We go to downtown Indianapolis to feed the homeless once a month and although it may take several months to make a large number of mats, our goal is to deliver at least 100 the first time take them. 

If you have any questions about this ministry please call Vonda Mercer at 317-727-2749 or email her at vonda.mercer@icloud.com  and if you would like to learn how to roll PLARN or crochet mats you can search that on Youtube where they have several videos uploaded.

If you would like to help by rolling PLARN here is a You Tube link that you can go to to learn how.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IstFcg-Ab1Q

If you would like to learn how to crochet the mats please contact us through email and we will send you the attachment and instructions or you are always free to simply give us a call!

If you are dropping off items for any of the 4 collections during the week you might give us a call first to make sure someone is at the church to accept your dontation.

Thank you for helping!
