First Congregational Church of Orange City United Church of Christ


Remember when we were collecting specific items needed by the Neighborhood Center, our LENTEN PROJECT that was interrupted by the Coronavirus?  We would like to resume that collection of items most often requested by needy families:

Mac and cheese Canned corn  Hot and cold cereal  Peanut butter  Pasta and sauce  White socks

If you bought items and still have them, or if you can buy them now, please bring them to the church parking lot on Saturday, Oct. 3, between 10 am and noon. Mission Board members will be there to accept your donations for delivery to the Neighborhood Center.  The need is even greater now than in the spring.

The October 3 “drive-through” seems a perfect time to celebrate our annual TEDDY BEAR SUNDAY or SATURDAY.  If you can also bring bears (under 10 inches, please) to the parking lot we will deliver them to local Firefighters to be distributed to children in stressful situations.

Many thanks,
Ruth Draper
Mission Board
