Our missions projects for July and August were very successful through the help and generous donations of the congregation.  Four people helped with “Dress-a-Child” registration, and four also helped with shopping.  We were able to provide school supplies for 41 students this year.  We collected $1,291.12 in donations, 9 students were sponsored, and many items were brought in to contribute to the supplies.  We wish to thank everyone who helped!



Priscilla Jaiah

Priscilla Jaiah is our missionary in Ganta. She gives thanks to God that Liberia has been declared Ebola free. She also talks about the carpentry shop and the agriculture program at the mission, and the vocational high school that is 90% completed.  We have pledged $1,500 for the year and have collected $675 at this time. 


We encourage folks to light the Mission Candles.  The money collected from this also goes to our Missionary Fund.



Our Fall Mission project was collecting money for Thanksgiving Baskets.  Fifteen families received baskets.



We were at Buehler's in New Philadelphia “Ringing the Bell” for the Salvation Army.
