Missions involvements and opportunities

Please continue to pray for our missionaries: Steven and Rachael Beiler, Kevin and Joan Brunk, Ralph and Debbie Kleinfeld, Jeff and Susan Myers, and David and Naomi Philllips, as well as for the ministry of Co.Mission Toledo. Also, we ask for prayers for the health of retired missionaries Ted and Joan Esselstyn.

We are collecting the following items to help those who have experienced a natural disaster. Please add to your shopping list: two hand towels, toothpaste, fingernail clippers, 30 or more Band-Aids, a sturdy comb, three toothbrushes, two bars of soap, shampoo and four packages of tissues. Also, please look for Beanie Baby-sized toys at garage sales. All of the above items are included in the kits. TCN will begin a new collection of Crisis Care Kits on Sept.15.

September is Alabaster Month. This special offering will be used to build clinics, churches and multi-use buildings, and to purchase land in the United States and around the world. TCN’s children will pass a “Chip In for Alabaster Can” during worship services in September. TCN’s Carolyn Weis formerly attended the Nazarene church in Edison, NJ, (right) that was built via Alabaster donations.

An informational meeting for anyone interested in participating in the March 7-14, 2020, trip to Native American Christian Academy in Sun Valley, AZ, is set for 4 p.m. on Sept. 15. Contact Deb Hoff (debhoff@woh.rr.com) or Kathy Voris (voriska.te@gmail.com) for additional details.

Be sure to look for the new books when they are on display in the TCN lobby. Children have new books, too. Please write your name on the card in the back of the book when checking it out.
