The January mission project is Red Bird Mission, Inc. and Red Bird Clinic, Inc. Theyhave been providing minisries in the region of the Appalachian Mountains since 1921. Today that need remains critical in the isolated, rural distressed areas. Chronic poverty, lack of jobs, poor housing, and rugged mountainous terrain provide obstacles to a fuller life for the residents of the area.
Red Bird Mission and Clinic strive to meet these needs through ministry in five areas: Education, Health and Wellness, Community Outreach, Economic Opportunity and Community Housing improvements.
We will be collecting monetary donations this month to be sent to Red Bird.
Missions Questions: CONTACT Kim D. or email@example.com with any questions.
Donation Credit Code: 10172
As you are aware, Community Aid removed the donation boxes from the parking lot. This was a program wide decision for Community Aid managers as they are eliminating pickup donations due to cost. As a result, we enrolled in their "take it in ourselves" program. In order for the church to get credit for any donation, you need to give our credit code: 10172, when you make a donation. This will work best for a large amount of clothing being donated - something that has significant weight (payout is by weight). So we decided that in order to get the best bang for our ounces, we would install donation boxes in the church near the side, Highland St. and rear entrances. The tubs will be marked Community Aid. So if you have just an item or two or three, just bring to church and place in a tub. Please make sure items are clean and in good repair. When full we will take it in for payment. If you have any questions, ask Kim or Sharon.
If you would like to donate funds to help the recent tornado victims in the USA through the United Methodist Committee on Relief, please write out a check to your local church and put in the memo line the "Advance #90170". In addition, you can place a labeled envelope in the Sunday collection plate or make a donation through paypal being sure to put the note UMCOR in the "Notes" line.
