MONTHLY MISSION

Midwest Mission Collection Center

Midwest Mission Distribution Center does so much more than just distribute the Ingathering Kits that we send. They repair/distribute sewing machines, bicycles, medical supplies, and many other items.  Items needed are: medical supplies such as crutches, wheel chairs, knee/arm/neck braces, walkers, Bibles, hymnals, communion serving pieces, counter tops (must be at least 2 feet x 2 feet). There is also a current need for onesies (size 0-3 months) for the layette kits that are assembled on site at MMDC. We will be taking a trailer of full of these items to Midwest Mission when we go on our trip in August. If you have items to donate contact the church office or Carol Winterboer.


MISSION DAY OPPORTUNITY

Want to experience a new adventure in mission work?

              We have the opportunity to volunteer to work one day, August 17, 2021 at Midwest Mission Center in Pawnee, Illinois. They have a variety of jobs. You can work a half day or a whole day, depending on how many wish to go and the openings for workers that day. Some of the jobs are mailings, sorting items, packing kits, building desks, repairing bicycles, sewing, etc.

The Baymont Inn, Springfield, Illinois is 18 miles from Pawnee. They have a special rate of $59.99 a night for Midwest Mission volunteers. There are dorms at the mission, but they are booked for the summer. There are also many campgrounds in the area for those who like to camp.

There are fun and interesting things to do in the area, if interested, Lincoln’s Presidential Museum is fantastic!

Springfield is 420 miles from Carroll, it is an 8 hour drive so plan on a travel day to get there and to return. If we have enough people interested that don’t want to drive we can take the church van.

If you want to go, please contact Marsha Nuckels at 712-830-7029 or the church at 712-792-1122 before June 20, 2021. We have to call in a definitive number of people coming, shortly thereafter.

If you would like to volunteer there at a different time, you can contact them. You don’t have to be a part of a group.
