Missions work at Peters Creek EPC focuses on local, regional, national, and international efforts. We try to include each of these various components in our programming each year either through our regular monthly support to our four major missions (Feed My Sheep, Border Transitions Ministry, Urban Impact, and Following His Call) or our monthly Working Miracles Through Mission collections for organizations such as Washington Mission, PT Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels, Pregnancy Resource, and others. We are very grateful to you, the entire congregation of Peters Creek EPC, for your faithful commitment to and support of these mission outreach efforts.
This year we are trying something new. For the entire month of August, we are having a special event called MISSION POSSIBLE. Each Sunday in August we will have a display table set up in the back entrance to Parish Hall with displays for eight designated missions for which we will be receiving donations. Each display will have a placard describing the mission and a collection bucket into which we are asking you to place your donations. Funds collected for each mission will go entirely to that mission so you can directly control where your donations go. You are encouraged to read about each mission and donate to the missions of your choice. Any size donation from pennies and nickels and dimes to one-, five-, ten-, and twenty-dollar bills up to checks of whatever amount will gratefully be accepted. All checks should be made out to Peters Creek EPC with a note on the memo line as to which mission you want your donation to go to.
Each week we’ll report on the funds collected to date for each mission with a challenge to see which mission receives the most money. We encourage you to donate early and often to keep your favorite missions in the lead as we track our progress toward meeting and exceeding the funding goals for each mission.
As a closing celebration for MISSION POSSIBLE, we will be holding an ICE CREAM SOCIAL immediately following the service on Sunday, August 27. We hope that you will be able to attend this special event as we celebrate a special month of giving.
