Adding New Chapters to an Old Story

Some give by going, others go by giving, and everyone serves by praying.

Intergenerational Mission (IGM)

 

We are off to Florida this summer for our thirteenth Intergenerational Mission (IGM) July 21 – July 27! Partnering with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) and Volusia Interfaiths/Agencies Networking in Disaster (VIND) we will be participating in hurricane recovery efforts in the area of Holly Hill in Volusia County.

 

Residents were hit by Hurricane Matthew in October 2016, and then Hurricane Irma hit eleven months later in September 2017, re-traumatizing residents who were still recovering from Hurricane Matthew. Our IGM is also an occasion for getting to know other church members and deepening friendships.

 

We will be hosted by Union Congregational Church in Holly Hill.

 

Questions?  Contact Brock McLeod or Holly Shoaf-O’Kula.

 

Our Formula For Life™ (FFL) necklace project provides urgently needed funding to help in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission for HIV-negative babies whose mothers are HIV-positive in Mwandi, Zambia. Since the project began in 2009, the total amount of money raised is now over $255,000.

 

FFL could really use your help, especially with selling events! The only job requirements are a smiling face and a willing heart! There are many upcoming events, including Aiken’s Makin’ (September 8 and 9). Please let the church office know if you would like to help. You can be a part of this amazing mission which is making a difference in our world!
