Golf Tournament, BBQ, & Silent Auction

Thanks to everyone who participated in and supported our Tim Seward/Tom Metts Golf Tournament, barbeque luncheon, and silent auction this weekend. Together you helped us raise more than $5,000 to go toward mission work in our sister synod, Tanzania. We are so grateful for everyone's generosity and hard work in this effort and can't wait to see our funds used to build a home for those in need!

From making hot meals for 38 needy/shut-in families in the area;to building a retaining wall and cleaning up a local park; to building our own food pantry so that we can store canned goods for needy people in our community; to making 95 scarves and collecting 5 additional blankets for Veterans in need; to repairing and upgrading the homes of 2 two widows in need in the area; to offering free car maintenance checks to members of the community; to collecting 12 baskets of groceries from Food Lion for hungry people in the area; to creating 150 "Book Bag Blessings" (food bags) for school children who have no food to eat on the weekends...we love serving people in Christ's name!
