Children Living in Poverty
Let's help these little ones.

New Missions Ministry Project

    According to a 2018-2019 financial data report issued by Dewey L. Carter Elementary School, 82 percent of their students live in underprivileged homes.

    The school has established a Cub Closet to help meet some of the needs of these children.  Our church has decided to take part in this project.

   Our own April Lewis is the coordinator for this project.

    We are asking for donations of items such as those listed below.  Items can be brought to the containers provided either at the church office or in the Family Life Center.

Items needed:

  • clothes hangers
  • coats for boys and girls, grades 4K through 6th grade, sizes 4T and up
  • clothes--tops and bottoms
  • sealed packages of socks and underwear
  • personal hygiene items--deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes

Thank you.

To all women and girls, join us
