  Ministry of Missions


    The Ministry of Missions is asking you to donate any "gently used household items" that would help foster children who have turned 18 and forced to live on their own get started. Think of what you would need to set up housekeeping in your first apartment. 

When a child ages out of the Foster Care program at 18 years they are on their own! They have to furnish their own apartment among other "adult" things they may not be ready for.

Please bring these items to the Church Fellowship Hall until September 1, 2013 and they will be delivered to the Gaston Country Foster Care.  


         THANK YOU
