Current Missions Projects

Collection of Funds for the Sewing Ministry:  Support our sewing ministry with a monetary donation that will be used to purchase supplies.  The sewing ministry supports outreach both locally and internationally.
 
Sending Cards to Nursing Homes —  As of today, we are still allowed to send cards to nursing home facilities, but it is advised not to send them to individual homes due to the fact that Coronavirus can live on surfaces and potentially could be transmitted through paper cards.  Our youth are working to send cards directly to our members in nursing homes. We are encouraging others to send cards to any resident at The Hermitage and label this way. (We know The Hermitage will accept cards marked to any resident, other facilities will not.)
