Our August Mission of the Month Our August Mission of the Month is Health Kits  Health Kits are collected by UMCOR and distributed all over the world  in times of disaster (floods, fires, tornado’s, hurricanes, etc) so folks can attend to their daily personal care. Kits consist of bar soap, toothbrush & toothpaste, a nail clipper, band aids, comb, and a washcloth and hand towel. We buy in bulk and get great prices allowing us to assemble many more kits. Our goal this year is 250 kits. We need to raise about $1250 for the supplies or about $5 for each kit. (Value of a Health Kit is about $12). Mission of the Month envelopes will be in the Sunday bulletin. We will assemble the kits between services on September 24th!
