Thank you!

Martin Luther King Jr. said “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?” 

These past few days have shown how many in our community want to help others. Last Saturday on the lawn of Wyoming Church, we collected and sorted lots of food donations for Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges. Yesterday, on Martin Luther King Day,  everything was brought to the food pantry by our dedicated volunteers. ❤️

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the food drive and The Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges as they continue to provide food and other essential items to our food-insecure neighbors in Orange and East Orange.

Mission Christmas Giving

Christmas Giving Although the holiday season will look much different for all of us this year, we would like to continue with our Christmas Giving program.  We have reached out to the Newark preschool that we have partnered with for the last 10 years to sponsor their students once again.  From their principal  “We are always honored and humbled to be not only thought of by you and the congregation but truly blessed to be recipients of your sponsorship for Christmas.”  
The school is 100% remote for students but the staff comes in everyday.  They will be able to set up a tent with teaching staff and family workers to distribute and have parents come and pick up the gift bags on a scattered schedule to make sure everyone is safe.  It will be a welcome surprise as many preschoolers have had a tough time with remote learning.

Our drive is now concluded and it’s time to deliver the packages Thank you for your generous donations of toys and for bringing some Christmas fun to the Early Childhood Center of the North Ward.
Love, The Christmas Mission Sub-Committee: Susan Johnson, Kay Britton, Tabby Gillim, and Ann Schwenke

Thanksgiving Dinner prep for HOMM

This is our annual Thanksgiving dinner prep that we do for House of Mercy Mission. This Covid year we will only prepare the food and hand it off to their staff outside their church. Pastor Tilly asked that we deliver the food by 10AM (on Saturday Nov. 21st) . Our aim is to make enough to serve 120! Can you help?

THANK YOU to all who volunteered whether to cook, carve or drive. We were fully subscribed. There will be a lot of grateful people this Thanksgiving!

Going… going… the Pumpkins are gone! But we are still collecting coats of all sizes

WHERE DO THE PROCEEDS GO?

  • 100 % of the proceeds from the Pumpkin Patch benefit WPC mission and outreach projects. This year the Mission committee has decided to concentrate our support on  food insecurity (ECHH, IHN MEND, etc.)
  • COAT COLLECTION: In conjunction with the PP we are also running a coat collection. As the weather begins to turn the need for warm coats will become urgent. There will be a rack rolled out each day on which to hang your gently used, clean coats

As John the Baptist was preparing the way for Jesus, he instructed the crowd before him, “Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise.”  Luke 3:11
