Mission Opportunities for Christmas

REBECCA’S STREET MISSION

·         Coats

·         Hats

·         Gloves

·         New socks

Where: Drop off clothing at Wyoming Church in the storage bin outside of the main door for Open Door Nursery. 

We also encourage our elementary or secondary school parents to throw out a wide net and ask their PTA to spread the word for donations. Contact Ellie Lesperance at 973 715 5230 with questions

The Seeing Eye, the oldest dog training program in the USis requesting clean used towels and blankets for their newborn puppy program in their extensive breeding facility in Chester, N.J.  When the puppies are born the staff uses warm towels and blankets to assist the new mother and her newborn pups.

big thank you to our congregation and the Open Door staff and parents for so generously supporting our Christmas projects this year.  We delivered 105 gift bags, carefully packed by the youth in our church, to the Early Childhood Center of the North Ward and 35 gift cards to Greater Abyssinian Church in Newark. 

special thank you to the kindergarten class in South Mountain School in South Orange. They collected 500 pairs of new socks before the Christmas Holiday!  They were donated to St. Joseph’s Giving Tree project.

WPC partners with the Christian Appalachian Project

In July a team of 12 youth and adults road-tripped to Eastern Kentucky to partner with the Christian Appalachian Project (CAP). For the fourth year in a row, we spent the first week of summer bringing hope and help to those in desperate need. This year we re-shingled roofs and built porches to make their homes safer and dryer. It was a wonderful week hard work and heavy lifting, team bonding and faith abounding. We can’t wait to go back again next summer!
