One of our World Mission projects is Samaritan's Purse - Christmas Child Operation. The congregation fills shoe boxes with items for a child. The boxes are delivered all over the world to children in need.
Pastor Wentworth and Pastor Rutter, along with our congregation prays over these boxes before they are sent out. We feel so blessed to be able to send a message of hope all over the world.
This year, our congregation filled almost 200 boxes for needy children all over the world. A Christian message is enclosed in each box.
NEW FRONTIER HEALTH FORCE was established by Dr. Tonya Hawthorne in Kenya. This organization is dedicated to providing excellent health coverage and quality education. Dr. Tonya, along with Rev. Linda Brown have been able to establish a health care facility as well as a school for the children of Kenya. 100% of the offering received in our adult Sunday School class goes to this mission.
Heifer International provides:
Nutritious food, Shelter, and clean water; a decent education, access to health care and a safe and secure environment for people who can’t afford them.
Our congregation supports this ministry by giving all our loose change on one Sunday a month.
This is one of our Community Mission Efforts. We bring in canned meat to be used by Feast Pantry for the needy.
Always a good contribution from our congregation.
One of our Community Mission projects is to help clothe children who are in need. We have Undie Sunday and Sock it to 'Em Sunday when we bring underwear and socks. They are delivered to Clothes to Kids.
Another Community Mission project is to help children with school supplies at the end of the summer. North Bay's congregation is always so generous with giving to missions.
During the summer, we have peanut butter and jelly drives to provide food for children in need while they are out of school. We have a very giving congregation who make these projects extremely successful.
Each year, we participate in the Salvation Army's Angel Tree.
This is an opportunity to give gifts to children who are in need at Christmas.
We are proud supporters of the Palm Harbor Food Pantry, FEAST.
There are several specific food drives during the year and continue to support this ministry throughout the year with both food and cash donations.
